In this spectacular submarine thriller, a Russian nationalist leader seizes control of a nuclear-missile base and threatens to bomb the United States. Standing between America and Armageddon is the submarine USS Alabama. As the Russian rebels prepare for an attack, orders are given to launch a defensive strike. But a torpedo blows out its radio communications and a follow up order is cut midway. Did the order say to proceed or abort? Differing opinions surface and what follows is a tense, military showdown between the captain and his first officer. Only one man will prevail. And the fate of millions hang in the balance.
