Description

The Trident nuclear submarine's 24 ballistic missiles have enough strategic nuclear warheads atop them to unleash twice the explosive energy detonated by all the conventional weapons in World War II. Now for the first time, Douglas C. Waller takes you on a tension-packed patrol under the Atlantic Ocean inside one of these Tridents, the "U.S.S. Nebraska." Granted more access to these awesome submarines than any journalist before, Waller penetrates one of the most secretive worlds in the U.S. military.

The Cold War may be over, but the Tridents are still ready at a moment's notice to unleash a nuclear holocaust. In chilling detail, "Big Red" reveals the top-secret procedures for starting World War III. You will come to know intimately the men of the "Nebraska," who are still willing to end life as we know it on this planet if the President orders them to do so. "Big Red" takes you into this closed society as a witness to secret rituals and life experiences where submariners hope to never unleash the destructive power they command.
