Description

Silent Running chronicles the wartime exploits of one of the Navy's most decorated World War II heroes and the men who served with him aboard the submarine Jack. A true story of relentless danger and hardships, of derring-do and heroic self-sacrifice, this book offers readers a vivid picture of what it was really like to wage war in a submarine.

Author Biography

JAMES F. CALVERT, Vice Admiral, USN (Ret.), was one of the Navy's most decorated officers in World War II. After the war, he became the second skipper to command a U.S. nuclear-powered submarine. In 1959, his ship, the Skate, broke through the ice to surface at the North Pole--the first ship of any kind to reach that part of the earth on the surface. In 1964, he became the second-youngest rear admiral in the Navy's history. Admiral Calvert served as superintendent of the U.S. Naval Academy and head of the Pacific fleet. After his retirement from the Navy, he became assistant to the chairman of the board of Texaco. Admiral Calvert is the author of Surface at the Pole, The Naval Profession, and A Promise to Our Country.
