Publisher's Summary

Russia's new ballistic missile submarine, Yuriy Dolgorukiy, is being deployed on its first patrol while America's newest fast-attack submarine, North Dakota, is assigned to trail it and collect intel. As the Russian submarine heads under the polar ice cap, its sonar readings reveal the trailing American sub and cause the Russians to begin a radical evasive maneuver. This, however, fails, and the submarines collide, resulting in damage that sends both to the bottom.

The Americans immediately set up a rescue mission, sending a new submarine and a SEAL team to establish an ice camp - Ice Station Nautilus - and stage a rescue. The Russians also send men and material, ostensibly to rescue their own men, but the Russian special forces team is also there to take the American base camp and the American sub, leaving no survivors or traces of their actions. As the men in the North Dakota struggle to survive, the SEAL team battles for possession of the submarine.

Rick Campbell's Ice Station Nautilus is an epic battle above and below the ice, special forces against SEALs, submarine against submarine, with survival on the line.

Great book.

Made me feel like I was on board at times. Being a retired Submarine Nuclear Chief, I loved the Engine room/Reactor startup references. The whole book kept me engaged and looking forward to listening to more. Looking forward to the next Rick Campbell book.

Best Campbell book to date

If you could sum up Ice Station Nautilus in three words, what would they be?

Riveting storyline

What did you like best about this story?

the detail of the military technology and warfare tactics

What does Michael Kramer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Very credible job with each character

Any additional comments?

Rick Campbell has stepped in where Clancy left off and provides a realistic taste of the professionalism and capability of those who serve within the armed services. Campbell's text compels us to understand the nature of warfare

Immediately Entertaining

Occasionally this story can become tedious . The sheer level of detail drives that in my opinion. You may want to read it more than once in order to understand all the nuances . I feel as if I have been on the North Dakota.

Nautilus comes through

I ultimately like this story but only when Christine and the ensuing intigue was introduced which to me felt too long. Submariners will love the realistic undersea warfare scenes.

I have read better.

Basic plot..
Not much to the story. Very easy to put this book down and walk away.

Slow & Steady

I found this book very slow I did finish it, I think that if your into submarines you will enjoy this book. The narrator at times I felt was bored just one tone unless doing a different voice. It’s a good story but does drag at bit.

Excellent techno-thriller

Better than Tom Clancy! I closed my eyes as was transported onto attack submarines battling for survival, and was thrust into the middle of a gunfight between SEALs and Spetznaz. absolutely thrilling.
