The Cold War At Sea
Real-Life Naval Adventures During the Cold War!
In 1961, Charles Gallagher graduated from the Naval Academy at the age of 20. Little did he know that after his first ship completed a Mediterranean cruise, it would be the first ship to leave port under emergency Top Secret orders for a mission that turned out to be the Cuban Missile Crisis . . . and that he would be part of an unfolding, thrilling, terrifying scenario that involved forcing a Russian submarine to surface. And that amazing story is only one of the remarkable exploits described in this gripping memoir. Follow Charles as he searches for a lost hydrogen bomb, obeys surprise orders to transfer to a US submarine in the middle of the Atlantic, accepts an assignment to be embedded in a Vietnamese River Assault Group, and more. Although Captain Gallagher left active duty in 1970, his memories of service are as vivid and compelling as a Tom Clancy novel—and better yet, every word is true!
