I won this book in a First Reads giveawayIn this alternately frustrating and captivating work W Crag Reed selects some events from this history of Cold War submarine history to fill out the page count on a memoir of his and his father s lives First the strengths When Reed is not talking about his own family s history he does a solid if freuently formulaic job of discussing many events during the period he covers Best of these are the stories of four Soviet Foxtrot submarine captains during the Cuban Missile Crisis which provides a gripping and enlightening portrait of the harrowing experience through the enemy s eyes Sections on the Ivy Bells tapping Soviet communications cableswere almost as good but suffer from a case of superfluous information repetition and blunt foreshadowingThe weakest portion is the author s own family memoirs Containing too much background tangential notes and strained associations with greater events these portions told from a first person perspective drag out interesting contributions to dominate and diminish the overall work I have no doubt both the author and his father served honorably but the memoir style conflicts with the straight history told in other portions The author is right in that an authoritative work on Cold War submarine warfare would be a welcome addition Sadly this is not it

Interesting sea stories mixed with contrived dialogue It felt like the author read other books about cold war submarine events then wrote historical fiction when describing events that took place between individuals He was a submariner himself for a while but his personal stories were not that eventful The writing is a bit too dramatic and pretentious for my tastes Some things the author clearly did not know what he was talking about I listened to the audio version and the narrator did not know how to pronounce common words which annoyed me Most troubling of all was that the author justifies at the beginning of the book his disclosure of classified information for the sake of history That is not OK if anything he wrote was actually true rather than created in his own mind then he should be in jail
