Nimitz Class Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Nimitz Class

"Nimitz Class" is Patrick Robinson's first foray into novel writing, and it's quite successful. More often than not, a reader finds himself checking the New York Times for headlines of the nuclear disaster in the Persian Gulf. The novel begins with perhaps the most horrifying thing the US Navy could imagine: the loss of an aircraft carrier in a nuclear explosion and the deaths of her 6,000 crew. While the government admits to the loss of the carrier via nuclear means, in secret, the Director of the NSA, Admiral Arnold Morgan, and nuclear expert LCDR Bill Baldridge investigate the possibility that, just maybe, the USS Thomas Jefferson was attacked by a submarine.

"Nimitz Class" is a nail biting thriller as Bill Baldridge travels the world in search of the renegade commander who could have possibly stolen a submarine and penetrated the near-invincible defensive lines of a carrier battle group. His searches take him from Scotland to Russia to Turkey to the South Pacific, while back at NSA Headquarters, Admiral Morgan cajoles, pleads, and outright threatens various government and political leaders in search of the terrorist sub commander.
"Nimitz Class" is first in a series of many political thrillers about the adventures of Admiral Arnold Morgan as he tries to keep a grip on the world's submarine fleets.

For years, the Carrier Battle Groups of the United States Navy have kept peace on the high seas. But suddenly, an aircraft carrier disappears.

This thriller takes the reader on the trail with the naval officer trying to find the person responsible for the instantaneous deaths of thousands of American sailors, including his brother...
