This is a war like no other: a fierce jungle contest pitting U.S. soldiers against a vicious, invisible enemy who is lost in the rocks, trees, in the earth itself, and among the civilian population. From half a world away, irresponsible politicians devise strict rules of engagement based on misunderstandings and deliberate deceits. For the Navy Seals, Vietnam has been a proving ground-a world of carefully controlled ops now the war's nightmare is intensifying as ultimate victory falls farther out of reach. And it will take more than skill, courage, and toughness for these unparalleled commandos to win their unequal battles-and more than luck to bring them back alive

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

The year is 1987. Military Intelligence has sent reports of an awesome new Soviet sub that no one in the West has ever seen before in the Russian-patrolled seas off the Kamchacka Peninsula. Now Tom Gorden, new commander of the Los Angeles Class submarine Pittsburgh, must transport a hand-picked team of U.S. Navy SEALs into hostile waters and go up against the phantom boat -- even at the risk of a shooting war. But the enemy has its own reasons for luring U.S. forces onto Russian turf. And there is a highly placed spy in the American ranks who may, even now, be leading a boat full of brave men to their doom.>

In the ocean depths, America's warriors ceaselessly patrol the dark territory on freedom's outer edge. These are the battles fought in silence ... and in secret. The newest fight begins when the People's Republic of China buys a fleet of highly stealthy and deadly attack subs from a cash-hungry Russia and takes advantage of international unrest to lay claim to territories they have long considered their own. US Commander Tom Garrett is asked to serve as Executive Officer on board the USS Seawolf to monitor the PRC's activities as they use all the firepower necessary to close the Straits of Taiwan in preparation for invading their "renegade province." As the Chinese fleet moves in for attack, it's left to Commander Garrett to sink the Chinese boats, break the PRC siege of Taiwan, and avenge those who were lost in the struggle.>
