The Silent War - The Cold War Battle Beneath the Sea by John Piña Craven
Craven takes readers inside the highly secret DSSP and DSRV programs, both of which offer crucial cover for sophisticated intelligence operations. Both programs performed important salvage operations in addition to their secret espionage activities, notably the recovery of a nuclear bomb off Palomares, Spain. He describes how the Navy’s success at deep-sea recovery operations led to the takeover of the entire program by the CIA during the Nixon administration. A compelling tale of intrigue, both within our own government and between the U.S. and Soviet navies, The Silent War is an enthralling insider’s account of how the submarine service kept the peace during the dangerous days of the Cold War.
