About this product
- DescriptionSubmarines glide along on their dangerous missions, their crews performing difficult tasks under arduous conditions. The mystique associated with these boats is evidenced by the number of movies and television shows dedicated to the subject. But where else will you find the lighter side of submarine operations - childish pranks, retrieving lost sailors, and even humorous episodes involving the father of the nuclear Navy, Admiral Rickover. Within this series of books are humorous short stories brought directly from inside American submarines. They reflect the work hard, play hard attitude of sailors of the silent service.
- Author BiographyDel Laughery is a 21-year veteran of the silent service. Serving aboard attack submarines as well as ballistic missile boats, he is qualified to operate and supervise four different kinds of submarine nuclear power plants. He is also a US Navy Master Training Specialist. Now retired from the service, he manages the military jet engine training program for Pratt & Whitney.
