Against The Current In The Silent Service

R.W. Herman

2023 FAPA Award Winner

What happens when indomitable will meets entrenched authority? A young enlisted sailor works with dogged determination to achieve his dream and become a commissioned officer-but is thrown into the unfamiliar world of the Silent Service. Immediately told he does not belong at his new command and likely will never be qualified, he must make a choice: comply with orders and walk away or dig deep and stand firm. Fighting to save his career with the odds ever against him, his fortitude and resilience are tested again and again as he steers against the current to prove his worth among the courageous, highly-trained professionals in the brotherhood known as submariners.
