Good + 9" 243 pages. "It was impossibly expensive, extraordinaily dangerous, and completely unarmed. The U.S. Navy's state-of-the-art NR-1 submarine ws the Cold War's most closely guarded--and revolutionary--secret. In 1966, after the U.S. almost lost a hydrogen bomb off the coast of Spain, Admiral Hyman Richover--father of the nuclear navy--outmaneuvered Congress and steamed full speed ahead on his brainchild: a spy-and-recovery submarine with a miniature nuclear reactor that could navigate the ocean floor for weeks at a time. But such depths would also cut off the crew should rescue become necessary. Now, for the first time, the triumphs and near disasters of the supersecret NR-1 are told through first-person accounts by its original crew members--including coauthor Lee Vyborny--who dared go where no men had gone before." Text is clean and tight. Cover has minor creasing.
