  • Super Nuke! A Memoir about Life as a Nuclear Submariner and the Contributions of a "Super Nuke" - The USS Ray (SSN653) Toward Winning the Cold War

    "Super Nuke!" describes what once was a carefully guarded secret -- one of the most highly sophisticated, powerful and effective war machines ever designed by man--the first operational nuclear fast attack submarine specifically designed to "go up close and personal" against the Soviet Union in the Cold War -- the "Super Nuke." The book takes you on entertaining journey about what it takes to become a nuclear qualified submarine officer, the meticulous detail in building the Super Nuke, the first three super secret "special operations," and the successful efforts to communicate and share the lessons learned by this "Super Nuke" with the entire US Naval submarine force toward the collective effort of winning the Cold War. This is a first hand and eyewitness account of the highly classified and spooky world of the nuclear fast attack submarine--largely invisible to the general public throughout the Cold War.  It should serve to motivate young people to consider the nuclear navy as a career, to share some of the lighter and darker moments in the history of nuclear submarines, and to properly credit the significant contributions of an amazing commanding officer as well as the highly competent officers and crew who quietly and effectively served their country with  honor and dign...

  • The Italian Submarine Scire 1938-1942 (Super Drawings in 3D)

    Scirè was an Italian Adua class submarine, which served during World War II in the Regia Marina (the Italian Navy). She was named after the Ethiopian region where there was a battle between the Italian and Abyssinian troops during the war in Ethiopia in 1936. She was laid down by the Italian shipbuilder "Odero-Terni-Orlando (OTO)” in La Spezia, on January 30, 1937, was launched on January 6, 1938, and was commissioned on April 25, 1938. During the war, she was modified to carry three mini submarines (SLCs) and remains one of the most famous submarines in the world due to the missions to Gibraltar and Alexandria.

  • Hitler's 'Wonder' U-Boats: The Birth of the Cold War's Hunter Killer Submarines

    Launched during the last days of the Third Reich in an attempt to restart the Battle of the Atlantic, the majority of the revolutionary Electro-U-boats never saw action. Instead, they became the forebears of the Cold War's much dreaded hunter-killer submarines.Slotted in among the highly technical information in the German U-boat Museum were some fascinating personal logbook annotations from men who served in these boats. These non-technical, human anecdotes form the core of this book. Rather than compiling a technical treatise, Hitler's 'Wonder' U-Boats makes maximum use of the personal accounts to tell the human story of how this new generation of submarines went to war under the incredibly harsh conditions that prevailed at the time.Accompanied by more than 100 images, this unique operational information is mirrored with similar reports from conventional snorkel-fitted U-boats, which were at sea at about the same time, to provide a good comparison with earlier types. The result is a work that makes it easy to appreciate the improvements that were made in such an incredibly short period of time to place the Electro-U-boat among the great technical achievements of the 20th century.
