October Fury

By Peter A. Huchthausen
Narrated by Grover Gardner / 10 hours 46 minutes

Drama on the high seas as the world holds its breath

It was the most spectacular display of brinkmanshipin the Cold War era. In October 1962, President Kennedy risked inciting anuclear war to prevent the Soviet Union from establishing missile bases inCuba. The risk, however, was far greater than Kennedy realized.

OctoberFuryuncovers startling new information about the Cuban missile crisis and thepotentially calamitous confrontation between US Navy destroyers and Sovietsubmarines in the Atlantic. Peter Huchthausen, who served as a junior ensignaboard one of the destroyers, reveals that a single shot fired by any USwarship could have led to an immediate nuclear response from the Sovietsubmarines.

This riveting account re-creates those desperatedays of confrontation from both the American and Russian points of view anddiscloses detailed information about Soviet operational plans and the secretorders given to submarine commanders. It provides an engrossing,behind-the-scenes look at the technical and tactical functions of two greatnavies along with stunning portraits of the officers and sailors on both sideswho were determined to do their duty even in the most extreme circumstances.

As absorbing and detailed as a Tom Clancy novel,this real-life suspense thriller is destined to become a classic of navalliterature.
