Product Description & Reviews
SUBMARINES! GO WHERE FEW ARE ALLOWED… Experience the danger and feel the power of one of the world’s most lethal weapons!As early as the Civil War, a new breed of predator appeared in the seas and in one frightening instant forever changed the balance of world power. Produced by The Discovery Channel and Time Life, SUBMARINES: SHARKS OF STEEL is an amazing series that allows the general public to see and experience life aboard U.S. Navy submarines and go where civilians usually never go. Learn about life aboard these underwater weapons and be engaged by over 3 hours of incredible footage on this thorough and well-done documentary. WHY BUY? Perfect for military buffs, history fans and naval enthusiasts.Wonderful documentary that is still relevant today. Four Volume Set Features These Episodes: Submariners: On a modern nuclear submarine, the distinction between night and day becomes a blur. Isolation, confinement, lack of privacy and intense pressure mark an endless cycle of six hour shifts. It is a world punctuated by constant attack readiness drills, tracking exercises and system checks. Living inside the weapon, today’s submariner is a specialist who knows the rhythm of his machine and the teamwork required to defeat threats. He is either alive or dead. It is this dark truth that has inspired fascination, fear and ultimate respect for what the submariner must endure. In the Belly of the Beast: With the first breach of a submarine’s double hull at depth, water spikes like a metal rod crushing everything in its path. An electrical fire means certain death in mere seconds. The slightest error in judgment could result in grounding, propulsion failure or worse… a reactor meltdown. Unless each scenario is handled with the highest degree of professionalism and training, the ship and all hands will be lost. This is the brutal reality of service on a submarine. Operating on the vanguard of technology, there is no margin for error. Ocean floors are littered with the wreckage of those who failed… duty demands only the fittest survive. The Hunters and the Hunted: As early as the Civil War, a new breed of predator appeared and in one frightening instant forever changed the balance of world power. It then evolved into the most terrifying weapon of mass destruction ever seen. Obeying only the tenants of surprise and stealth, submarine warfare in both World Wars was by necessity a ruthless endeavor. German U-boat wolf packs nearly strangled a nation. U.S. submarines sank 1/3 of the Japanese Navy. And Japan’s suicide subs threatened to make the Pacific Fleet obsolete. Inspiring fear from the moment of their creation, no one could have predicted just how deadly these machines ultimately would prove to be. The Hidden Threat: Riding the razor thin edge of mutually assured destruction, U.S. and Russian nuclear submarine forces still wage a secret war. It’s a deadly game of cat and mouse, hidden from the scrutiny of the outside world. Their own governments never know exactly where they are at sea. And once on patrol, the “silent service” is accountable to no one but themselves and their singular mission. When the launch sequence begins, only a precarious fail safe system or an enemy’s torpedo can stop them. Shrouded in secrecy, few have ever understood the risks of this strategic defense… until now.
