Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For years, the Ohio–class submarine served as one of the frontline weapons in America's nuclear Navy. But with the collapse of the USSR, America needs to modernize its arsenal to take into account its new enemies. With that goal, the Navy begins a controversial conversion of the USS Ohio to take America into the future of naval warfare.

The Ohio's ballistic missiles have been replaced, the tubes now capable of a two–pronged attack. What had been used to house ICBMs now can contain SEALs or a new prototype of underwater submarine, a revolutionary undersea fighter that flies through the water, striking targets at will.

Both barrels will be brought to bear against America's newest enemy, Iran. The zealots in power have unleased a terrible two–pronged plan, hoping to attack oil rich nations Oman and the UAE, while at the same time lauching a devasting attack on the American Fifth Fleet in the Gulf. Only one group of sailors and commandos can stop them — the compliment of the USS Ohio.

Synopsis:

The war on terrorism explodes in the ocean's depths in this latest submarine adventure by the author of SEALs: The Warrior Breed series. Original.

Synopsis:

With new enemies to fight, the U.S. Navy embarks on a controversial project to convert a ballistic nuclear missile submarine into something even more deadly. The first boat to undergo the transformation: the U.S.S. "Ohio." Original.

Synopsis:

Once the frontline weapon of America's nuclear Navy, they served vigilantly throughout the Cold War.

Now an even more sinister enemy is preparing to strike — and an upgraded Ohio Class is armed for action.
