Did you think they’d find anybody alive on the Kansas City?

It was a good possibility as I think submariners are trained on how to survive underwater. My dad’s brother, George, was on a sub during WWII. It was a very dangerous job and my dad said he was on leave a lot during the war.

Some of them have survived. I'm not giving any spoilers away. The rescue is in chapters 38-40. I think movies featuring submarines are fascinating...although I certainly don't want all that water above me. One of my favorite movies is "The Hunt For Red October".

Some did. I think the chances are slim in most cases.

Two weeks in that can...you could die of boredom before the air ran out:)

Chances were they'd find some of the crew still alive, because they need to get their hands on that 'clue'...

>6 Sergeirocks: I agree and I think the SEAL may not only have a clue but may even end up on the team - they are short a few “gun dogs” after with Mike’s and Jerry’s deaths
