Available in Kindle eBook, trade paperback, and audiobooks narrated by the great R.C. Bray, the complete Crash Dive series chronicles the adventures of Lt. Charlie Harrison as he fights in the submarines against the Imperial Japanese Navy during WW2. You can get the books individually or as an omnibus.
CRASH DIVE: Charlie’s first mission in the submarines is on an old, broken-down S-class submarine. While the Battle of Guadalcanal rages, the S-55’s captain takes his crew on a daring mission to Rabaul, the heart of Japanese power in the South Pacific.
SILENT RUNNING: Joining the crew of the Gato-class submarine Sabertooth, Charlie Harrison goes to the Philippines to rescue American refugees and confronts the aircraft carrier Yosai. As disaster strikes, Charlie must take command and make the ultimate decision–get the refugees home, or risk everything on an all-or-nothing attack.
BATTLE STATIONS: Fresh from PXO School, Charlie is offered a posting on the Sandtiger under Captain Gilbert Moreau, a legendary fighting captain in the submarines. The Sandtiger‘s mission: join a wolf pack that will penetrate the heart of the Japanese Empire. Along the way, Moreau teaches Charlie how to fight–and what lines should never be crossed.
CONTACT!: The Sandtiger receives new orders: take a team of elite commandos to the island of Saipan to destroy a major coastal gun before 70,000 Marines land on its beaches. Once Saipan is taken, American bombers will be able to reach Tokyo. For the Japanese Empire, this triggers kantai kessen—the final decisive naval battle.
HARA-KIRI: Charlie’s first patrol as captain of the Sandtiger is plagued by a lack of ship sightings and a malfunctioning boat. When a massive fleet materializes on the horizon, he identifies it as Admiral Halsey’s Third Fleet come to invade the Philippines. The Japanese respond, culminating in the largest naval battle in history and Charlie facing the ultimate test.
OVER THE HILL: In this final, powerful episode in the Crash Dive series, the war to which Charlie has sacrificed everything will demand far more. In return, it will teach him war’s true meaning and propel him to his destiny, one that is dark and brutal but also filled with hope.
“Adventure fiction in the grand tradition of the Hornblower series … Crash Dive blew me away.” – John Dixon, author of Phoenix Island
