Attack Of The Seawolf from the Author: Michael DiMercurio. ONE OF OUR SUBS WAS MISSING The nightmare fear of the U.S. had come true. One of our finest submarines, the U.S.S. Tampa, on a top-secret spying mission, had fallen into Chinese Communist hands. The Communists, fighting for survival in a savage civil war, now held not only the sub, the crew, and the gutsy Commander Sean Murphy hostage, but U.S. power and prestige as well. America had one last desperate card to play. The most advanced submarine in the world, the still untried U.S.S. Seawolf, under the command of maverick daredevil Captain Michael "Patch" Pacino. The Seawolf had to steal back the Tampa from where it lay guarded by the entire Chinese fleet armed to the teeth with technology from the bankrupt Russians.

Seawolf Five Five from the Author: Richard Hargis. Since Indochina, both France and the U.S. have been split down the middle between themselves and each other. These wars die hard. Retrace the fight as an American pilot and a French one define the emotional battleground between the spirit and the sword. In 1966, Brad Thomas flies a helo for COMSIXTHFLEET and exploits the joie de vivre on the Cote Azur with girlfriend Maggie. At the same time, France has the bomb and withdraws from NATO. Sixth Fleet flagship is without a homeport and sails to Tunisia in search of a new one. There, Brad meets an expatriate, Robert Dupont, and they become les compagnon amis. Robert is Brad's anvil, however, as he relives combat flights over Indochina and Algiers, he virtually foretells Brad's dubious future. Brad finds himself in a gunship over Vietnam. He meets a Vietnamese woman and falls in love. As disillusion for the war sets in, she becomes his touchstone with reality. When it comes to war's end, there's more at stake than winning or losing - the very soul of the nation is at risk. In repeat scenarios of Vietnam, Brad will come to know that when a nation splits, the prospects of its demise is imminent. As Brad and Ti-Ti try to put their lives back together, a quirk of fate soon changes everything for them.

Sea Wolf Of The Confederacy from the Author: David W. Shaw. In June 1863, just days before the epic clash at Gettysburg ended the last rebel land invasion of the North, a small party of the Confederate Navy mounted a devastating series of raids on the New England coast, culminating in a battle off Portland, Maine. Veteran author David W. Shaw brilliantly re-creates this almost forgotten chapter of the Civil War in rich narrative detail drawn from accounts of the participants. At the center of the conflict were two men: the hotheaded young adventurer Charles W. Read, who resigned his commission as a Union midshipman to become a lieutenant in the Confederate Navy; and Secretary of the United States Navy Gideon Welles, a well-connected politician who ably oversaw the explosive growth of the fleet -- including the revolutionary ironclads -- during the war despite his lack of maritime experience. Serving aboard CSS Florida off the coast of Brazil, Read hatched a daring plan to sail a captured brig directly into the Union's home waters and wreak havoc on their shipping lanes. Burning or capturing more than twenty merchant vessels in less than three weeks, and switching ships several times to elude capture, Read's rampage caused widespread panic in Northern cities, made headlines in the major daily newspapers, and brought enormous pressure on Welles to "stop the rebel pirate." At one point there were nearly forty Union ships sent to hunt down Read in a cat-and-mouse game that finally led to his dramatic capture off the coast of Maine. Sea Wolf of the Confederacy brings to light this fascinating yet little known episode of the war, combining Shaw's flair for powerful storytelling with extensive research culled from contemporary newspapers, journals, and official war records. Taking readers to the heart of the action on the decks of the burning ships, Shaw offers a compelling portrait of the complex Read and an insightful new perspective on the divisions splitting North and South during this dark time in American history.
