Has Anyone Read TRANSPARENT OCEANS, THE DEFEAT OF THE SOVIET SUBMARINE FORCE?
If so, what is your opinion of this 2003 book?
Here's a quote from a two-star Amazon.com review:
"Unless you have a deep abiding love for highly technical descriptions of SOSUS-based passive acoustic detection capabilities related to antisubmarine warfare, I would stay away from this book. While it is well written, it is very dry and without experience in the field, one may feel overwhelmed.
Fortunately, I served as an acoustic aircrewman in P-3 Orions and ASWOCs for 26 years and was privy to considerable SOSUS generated intel regarding Soviet submarine detections and locations. I had a good understanding of what SOSUS is and how it works and I was still left trying to get my mind around many of the technical descriptions."
