The Soviet submarine force threatened the United States from the early 1960s until the end of the Cold Wa.

The Soviet submarine force threatened the United States from the early 1960s until the end of the Cold War. The destruction of the Soviet missile submarines was the responsibility of the United States Navy; it remained their number one priority throughout the Cold War. The apparently insoluble problem of destroying the Soviet submarines was actually solved by an unknown program called the Long Range Acoustic Propagation Project (LRAPP). The efforts of LRAPP made the oceans transparent; the Soviet submarine force could essentially be destroyed.

Excerpt from the book. Transparent Oceans: The Defeat of the Soviet Submarine Force by Louis P. Solomon. CHAPTER ONE Introduction. The Threat1 The advent of the nuclear submarine was a formidable new threat to the Free World. The Soviet Union, with the largest submarine force in the world, clearly had in its hands a potential major threat to free world commerce. The missile-carrying submarine was designed to position itself in the ocean and, upon receipt of the appropriate command, launch its missiles quickly against a previously designated target.

The Defeat of the Soviet Submarine Force. Published January 1, 2003 by Thriller Tales.

The Soviet submarine force threatened the United States from the early 1960s until the end of the Cold Wa. The efforts of LRAPP made the oceans transparent; the Soviet submarine force could essentially be destroyed, on command, starting in the late 1970s. The destruction of the Soviet missile submarines was the responsibility of the United States Navy; it remained their number one priority throughout the Cold Wa. The solution to the antisubmarine warfare problem was a major part of the success of the West in winning the Cold War.

Transparent Oceans: The Defeat of the Submarine Force is an interesting history. It is a good source of information, giving the names of individuals and organizations who worked on ocean acoustics during the Cold War. The author's word usage is good and the text reads well. I enjoyed the book, having worked as an oceanographer for the Coast Guard during the period covered by the book, it brought back many pleasant memories. I would favorably recommend the book to anyone one interested in the history of the Cold War at sea.

The text needs some editing, words are hyphenated in the middle of a line, not at the end of the line where it would be appropriate. Also some portions of the text have been deleted, this is especially true of the text in the side bars. The figure captions are not informative and really need to be redone. The author's contention that the achievements in long range passive acoustic detection of submarine, was crucial in "Defeating the Submarine Force" is, at best, an exaggeration. Detection and classification are only the first steps in countering an under sea threat. He says nothing about how the very quiet submarines introduced by the Soviet Navy in the late 1980s would have been dealt with.

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.

I purchased this book under the mistaken assumption that it would be in the mold of "Blind Man's Bluff" and the genre of submarine warfare narratives that are published so frequently lately. This was mainly due to the subtitle "The Defeat of the Soviet Submarine Force", which implied to me that the book would be full of tales of the detection and tracking of Soviet subs. This book is nothing of the sort. Rather, it is a technical memoir of the US Navy Long Range Acoustic Propagation Project (LRAPP) and their work. There are some stories of shipboard events, but they are always about various sea trials and oceanographic experiments. The book is more of an exercise in bureaucratic record-keeping, with a detailed listing of who did what, timelines, budgets, and heavy use of acronyms. There are some vignettes in boxes out of the main narrative that add some human interest and humor, but otherwise this is a tedious read.

The work described is truly remarkable, though, and is worth skimming past the dull recitals. The people were truly talented and achieved remarkable results. When read as a distillation of a highly technical subject, the book is quite accessible to the layperson and gives a feel for how the US Navy went from groping about blindly through the world's oceans and then, thanks to the techniques developed by LRAPP, could locate and track Soviet subs at great distances. The progression through the various oceanographic experiments that enabled this discovery is well-told (if you filter out the discussions on budgets and rank). I was particularly interested in the Arctic operations, which I believe my brother was involved (hey Ed!). The book covers the basics of ocean acoustics in plain English and has a much-needed technical glossary. The timeline, photographs, and figures are OK at best.

The author was not well served by the editing of this book. The flow of the text, by removing some repetitive tendencies, could have been much improved. The actual typography is atrocious, with hyphenated words occurring in the middle of lines, and entire sentences being cut off by text boxes.

Still worthwhile for the hardcore submarine reader.

I was a Navy Technician in the early days (1950s) of SOSUS so this book was very interesting for me. But...it will not be everyone's cup of tea.

This book gives an interesting and detailed history of a major technology development effort that helped the US gain the upper-hand between submarine forces during the Cold War. Unfortunately, the book needs to be edited for ease of reading and the Kindle version reformatted so that the numerous footnotes do not appear as inserts of indefinite length in the regular text.

Title is amazing but content is not.

We wait for some new things about the sub war during the cold war between soviet and US. We find a poor history of the accoustic research made during around 30 years. It's interesting but doesn't justify the title.

I don't vote for this book except for those who are novice in this subject.

Kind regards

Here in Brazil, I bought and read the kindle ediction of this regular book.
This regular book has these qualities:
1- This book is concise and cheap.
2- This book is easy to understand.
3- This book is really about its subject.

Even so, I have to give three stars for this regular book, because of these failures:
1- At least in the kindle ediction that I bought and read, this book has many errors of writing, in dozens of times.
2- At least in the kindle ediction that I bought and read, this book hasn't any photos, except in one appendix. The explanations of photos are on the text, but the photo itself isn't on it.
3- At least in the kindle ediction that I bought and read, this book hasn't any good map.
4- This book isn't well organized.
