On April 10, 1963, the submarine USS Thresher sank off the New England coast. The loss of the 129 officers, sailors, and civilian technicians was a tragedy for the Navy, our nation, and especially for the families of that gallant crew. With interviews and photographs from the families of the lost submariners, Kerr captures most vividly the lives and achievements of this remarkable group of men. Hardcover. 124 pgs.
