The Chess Players, A Novel of the US Navy's Cold War at Sea
"Great read. Absorbing fiction that truthfully tells the way it was during the US Navy's Cold War." --Rear Admiral Gil Guilbault, USN (ret.), former Battle Force Commander in the Sixth Fleet. The Chess Players (375 pages, photos) By Francis J. Partel, Jr. Reviewer: Dr. V. H. Schumacher, The Tin Can Sailors
Assn. Overall Rating: Four Stars (highest rating): Highly recommended. An excellent book. This excellent book is a skillfully written blend of Tom Clancy, the movie, Top Gun, with just a dash of The Caine Mutiny. The story line and very realistic characters are beautifully woven into the weft and weave of that troublesome period of the Cold War from the mid 60s into the mid 70s. It was a time when "accidents at sea" between the U.S. and Russian Navies took place more so than revealed to the general public. During that same period the USS Liberty was sunk by the Israeli Navy and classified as "an accident". At any moment one lone individual on either side had the power to send the world into a terrible and costly war. The appendix provides readers with an understanding of the communication shorthand and will help those unfamiliar with the terminology get a true sense of the environment. Crack the cover and you will be unable to put it down!
