More About Silver Dolphins by Richard Hansher
 
 
 
Overview
There are numerous books on submarines, full of naval history and true life stories, but none quite come close to 'Silver Dolphins', the record of one man's service in the US Navy and his sea voyages filled with the good, the bad, the funny - and the just plain ridiculous situations he encountered during his time of action and adventure. After two months at sea on a crowded submarine, Sub Sailors are a wild bunch - they are as bad as cowboys after a cattle drive. Do the submarines make them crazy, or do they just act as a magnet for every nut who joins the navy? Either way, the sense of naval humor that arises from life in such close quarters is something that cannot be printed in a family magazine, so they are collected here, from anecdotes about the trials of isolation on patrol to the true life stories of men of courage, action and adventure like Snake, Tongue, and Button Butt John. Enlisted Submariners are dedicated, highly trained, incredibly hardworking, and make up 90% of every submarine crew ever put to sea. This is their story. Every reader owes it to themselves to use Amazon's look-in feature to take a peek inside this remarkable book. Richard Hansher joined the US Navy at age 17 and served two enlistments in the Submarine service along with other men of courage noted for their high levels of training. During his career he was assigned to both diesel and nuclear submarines, and now, he tells his story, with all the rude, crude, and at times dark pieces missing from more family friendly accounts of life at sea.
