Jeffrey Fuller is America's newest hero. Awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his victories in battle as captain of America's most sophisticated and deadly fast-attack nuclear submarine, the USS Challenger, Fuller takes grim satisfaction in the honor, knowing at what cost it came. But he has barely enough time to receive the decoration before he is tasked with a new mission. An Allied convoy is steaming toward Africa, hoping to establish a beachhead on the continent. The enemy has dispatched its most lethal new submarine, the SMS Admiral von Scheer, to ensure that the convoy never reaches its destination. Fuller's mission is to protect the convoy at all costs.
Then a nearly impossible mission gets even more difficult. The Berlin-Boer Axis is attempting to gain a foothold in South America, a development that would force the United States to fight the war on yet another front, an escalating conflict they can't possibly win. Now Fuller must make a no-win decision: deploy his team of Navy SEALs to South America to destroy the nuclear-armed enemy insurgents, or patrol the depths of the Atlantic seeking threats to the convoy? The failure of either mission will mean defeat for the Allied cause. Stalking his prey beneath the waves where the pressure alone can kill, Commander Jeffrey Fuller knows that while one man's life may be meaningless, one man's death could change the course of the war.
