‘Tragedy at Three Hundred Fathoms’ By Tom Gaston

“After decades their story and the truth can now be told.”
Following the successful completion of extended special operation missions in both the Mediterranean and Black Sea during the period 6 May 1967 through 6 January 1968, the submarine USS (Redacted) (SSN-Hull Number Classified Secret) was reported missing. After an exhaustive search by surface ships and aircraft, the submarine was located on 24 March 1968 just south of the Azores at the base of an uncharted submerged mountain range at a depth of 300 fathoms beneath the sea. Attempts to salvage and raise the submarine by both the United States Navy and later by the Soviet Military Maritime Fleet failed. Reports of survivors aboard the stricken submarine were never confirmed. On 22 May 1968 the submarine USS (Redacted) (SSN-Hull Number Classified Secret) was removed from rolls of commissioned U.S. Navy vessels and listed as missing and declared sunk. The official details surrounding the tragic loss of the submarine and its crew were never disclosed and remained classified …until now.
“A work of fiction inspired by many actual events.”
