In Silent Battleground by D. M. Ulmer, the Cold War did go hot when the Soviet
Union attacked the US Navy coastal installations and all but destroyed the American surface fleet. Ulmer moves
the reader through tense combat events with skill and expertise using his 32 years of experience
as a professional submariner to make this page-turner complete with intrigue and speculation. Reviewers
are touting this naval-action thriller about submarine warfare as the next Hunt for Red October.
Wartime operations on board the nuclear submarine
USS Denver take an unexpected turn as weapons officer, Lieutenant Brent Maddock, faces numerous challenges to his combat tactics
skills from both an elusive enemy and a vindictive and ambitious skipper. While the complex war unfolds
beneath the waves, Herculean efforts ashore restore a Washington west coast submarine facility to keep the war defense effort
ongoing as the President of the United States resists powerful political advocates for surrender.
James H. Patton, CAPT USN (Ret) and technical advisor
to the film Hunt for Red October states in his review, 'Captain Ulmer parlays his knowledge and experience
gained from command of a US Navy Diesel-Electric submarine and earlier service as a Department Head on one of the first nuclear-powered
Polaris ballistic missile submarines to craft a fascinating 'alternative history' in the early part of the last decade
of the 20th century … unusual in this “techno-thriller” genre, Silent Battleground absolutely
reeks of both technical and tactical credibility … readers will find a delightful blend of elements from On the
Beach, Incredible Victory, Thirteen Days and Hunt for Red October. Submariners will approve,
non-submariners will learn, but all will enjoy Silent Battleground.'
Another reviewer, who once worked in the Office of Submarine Warfare (OP-31) in the Pentagon, The Late Donald S. Campbell Jr., CAPT USN (Ret) wrote 'Captain Ulmer's conjecture framed in his novel Silent Battleground
envisions a realistic possibility of internal confrontations within the US submarine officer corps had
the Cold War turned hot in 1987. In this regard, he provides interesting insight to a professional issue kept submerged within the
Silent Service community. Did the technical broom of nuclear propulsion sweep
away a nucleus of officers, highly qualified and needed to insure combat readiness of the Submarine Force?
A revealing read for submariners and lay persons alike.'
'Silent Battleground is a powerful, compelling novel. Author, D. M. Ulmer, a Navyman of 32 years, moves the reader through
tense events with skill and expertise using his professional savvy to lace the plot with intrigue and
speculation that makes the book a page-turner. Ulmer's rare talent exposes torn loyalty
and self discovery the characters endure. They serve with duty, fear, and vengeance but the human element of love and
family challenges them. I found myself believing fiction to be fact possible.
JR Reynolds, author, Sustenance of Courage and Woman of Courage.
Dave Bartholomew, CAPT USN (Ret) and former commander of two US warships writes: 'Don
Ulmer’s Silent Battleground leaves me breathless at the end of every chapter.
Don brings us, realistically, into the shipboard world. His wardroom scenes are so realistic that
I found myself there. Don shows us a scenario that very nearly happened. In doing so,
he not only gives us a view of professional Navy officers, but opens a rare glimpse into the war-fighters’ personal
lives – on both sides of a conflict we hope never happens.'
