"Scorpion Down" is another great read.
on March 1, 2016
well balanced story of the human side of the loss of 120 men in sudden sinking of Thresher. well written acount of the risks inherent in submarine design and engineering, the inter-dependence of civilian shipyard workers and the ship's crew who remain aboard during refit periods and subsequent sea trials. While the resulting SubSafe program was mentioned briefly, there could have been more engineering diagrams and information regarding the broad range of changes which were included for boats under construction and existing boats as they came in for overhaul. "Scorpion Down" is another great read.i
