Poopie Suits Announces Release of 1st Audio Book
By: Poopie Suits Series
It is rich with historical context that includes the Vietnam War and the associated civic upheaval, the counterculture, political assassinations, and the Apollo Space Program.
It explains, in terms a non-technical person can understand, the various systems found on a nuclear submarine and how they work: the reactor propulsion system, sonar, the periscope, how to fire a torpedo, communications, and a lot more.
No classified details are revealed, the story is more about the day-to-day life on a hot running nuclear submarine during that period. The book highlights the funny, maudlin, and sometimes tragic stories among the men who were locked up for many days in a steel tube with no sunlight, no news, no word of the family back home.
How did they deal with the stress of knowing one mistake could doom the entire boat? The details will fascinate you.
There are 147 reviews on Amazon of Poopie Suits & Cowboy Boots, rating 4.7 out of 5. Here are two:
"A wonderfully well-written book, which takes a closer, more human glance at the life of the submariner during the Cold War. This is a human story, not a story about tech, or ops, or strategy. This is light-years apart from other submarine reads like "Blind Man's Bluff", but no less engrossing."
"I thoroughly enjoyed this book and devoured it in two days. As a diesel submarine officer during the same era the book dredged up memories. The book was well written and should appeal to anyone with an interest in submarines. It's biographical, not an expose or a hard-core technical treatise."
