Spy Sub: A To Secret Mission to the Bottom of the Pacific

by Roger C Dunham

Naval Institute Press | July 15, 1996 | Hardcover

Not yet rated | write a review
A dramatic narration of Dunham's experiences aboard a US nuclear submarine during its search for a nuclear-armed Soviet submarine lost in the north Pacific. The author claims that he has changed technical information and names to be cleared by the Department of Defense because the operation was so sensitive it is still classified "top secret." A big fish story? Well there's enough adventure and suspense in the volume to compensate for incredulity, particularly if a reader is enamored with the Tom Clancy version of naval operations. Not incidentally, Dunham is a medical thriller author and screenplay writer. Lacks an index, and makes a small gesture toward a bibliography. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

This is the true story of an American nuclear submarine's desperate search for a nuclear-armed Soviet submarine lost in the depths of the north Pacific. Told by a sailor on board the U.S. spy sub, it reads like a techno-thriller, but the events recorded here actually happened. To this day - some twenty-eight years later - the U.S. Navy has never publicly admitted the operation took place. The mission remains so sensitive that it is still classified "compartmentalized top secret". With slight technical modifications and name changes, however, Roger Dunham's story was cleared for publication by the Department of Defense. It offers the first eyewitness account of what the Pentagon calls one of the most successful military operations of the Cold War. Dunham brings readers into his submarine as the crew struggles to accomplish their mission in spite of flooding, emergency shutdowns of the nuclear reactor, depletion of uranium fuel, the loss overboard of a chief petty officer, and the mental breakdown of a crewman vital to the engine room.
