I am just one of many who experienced life on a submarine during World War II. Silent Running is a story sincerely told--free of any revisionism or cynicism--and I commend Vice Admiral Calvert for sharing this dramatic personal account of that difficult and exciting time. --President George Bush Hardened old sub vet that I am, I still felt the need for two weeks R&R after reliving Jims only too realistic war patrolling adventures. --C. W. Nimitz, Jr., Rear Admiral, USN (Ret.) I believe it is the best personal account yet written on U.S. submarine operations in the Second World War. Calvert writes with lucidity and a rare candor. We get an extraordinary sense of what it was like, feeling the tensions and emotions, sharing the successes and disappointments, .This is a true story with teal people, always gripping and sometimes tender.
