The Manuscript for WHY THE USS THRESHER (SSN 593) WAS LOST Has Gone to the Publisher

This is a document that grew in the writing to become a powerful assessment of what went wrong and why it went wrong with critically important contributions by engineers and those qualified to operate US nuclear submarines.

It has become far more than an analysis of acoustic detections of the disaster by HMCS Shelburne although that analysis provided the basis for the assessments about why the event occurred, assessments that rely on multiple independent lines of evidence, the bottom line for which is that there was no flooding before THRESHER collapsed at a depth of 2400-feet.

As was the case with the SCORPION book published in 2011, the writer has refused royalties. No one should seek to profit from such tragedies.
