Silent Running is a story sincerely told--free of any revisionism or cynicism--and I commend Vice Admiral Calvert for sharing this dramatic personal account of that difficult and exciting time. --President George BushHardened old sub vet that I am, I still felt the need for two weeks R&R after reliving Jims only too realistic war patrolling adventures.

--C. W. Nimitz, Jr., Rear Admiral, USN (Ret.)I believe it is the best personal account yet written on U.S. submarine operations in the Second World War. [Calvert] writes with lucidity and a rare candor. We get an extraordinary sense of what it was like, feeling the tensions and emotions, sharing the successes and disappointments, ... This is a true story with teal people, always gripping and sometimes tender. It is exciting to read and hard to put down. --J. L. Holloway, Admiral, USN (Ret.) President, Naval Historical Society, Chief of Naval Operations, 1974-1978.I knew Jim Calvert Throughout the war, and in this book he has told the submarine story in a way that catches the flavor and tang of the real thing.

This is the way it really was. --Frederick B. Warder, Rear Admiral, USN (Ret.) Legendary W.W. II skipper of the Seawolf.
