As a former submariner, I really enjoyed this. But I mostly enjoyed it because it was a memoir written by a plank owner of my old boat, the USS Ray. Charles Jett was on the boat as it was being built, and it was commissioned in 1966. I didn’t serve on the Ray until 1973-1975, so he was a bit before my time. But at the same time it was really enjoyable to read about some of the significant contributions the Ray made in the cause of the Cold War. And the photo on the cover is the same one that hangs in my study.
