4-STAR REVIEW: SUB TALES 4 by Charles Hood and Frank Hood

The Description

Sub Tales Series: Book 4
Publication Date: September 8, 2023

Sub Tales 4 is the latest offering by brothers Charles and Frank Hood in their prolific output of nonfiction books about the US Submarine Force. Like the three volumes preceding it in the series, Sub Tales 4 offers a detailed recounting of some of the most pivotal and poignant moments in the rich history of the Silent Service. Arranged as an anthology of individual short stories, the book covers many subjects with prose, photographs, maps, schematics, and other illustrations to complement the narrative.

The Review

An anthology highlighting U.S. submarine history draws upon the many stories to celebrate the men and women who have served.

The end result is Sub Tales 4 by Charles Hood and Frank Hood. The book is divided into three main sections, followed by a bonus one.

The short story approach is designed for readers who may be pressed for time and unable to read for long periods of time. Additionally, the book design is such that readers can start at any point within the book.

The stories contained within the anthology also feature photographs, charts, and other visual images. This provides an added dimension for readers who might not be as familiar with the subject matter.

About The Author

Charles Hood is a Physician in South Carolina. He is the principal author of 7 of the 8 books in the Poopie Suits Series of True Stories, not fiction, from the US Submarine Force. Covering decades and wars and the Cold War, these stories offer insight into the severe world of the men (and now women) living inside a steel tube designed to sink.  What were the pressures they faced, the close calls, the unique encounters in ports, how did their families cope?  These subjects, and a whole lot more are covered in the Poopie Suits Series.


Frank Hood served on a nuclear submarine from 1968-1972 and his story “Poopie Suits & Cowboy Boots – Tales from a Submarine Officer During the Height of the Cold War”  was his story.  Surviving an odd interview with VADM Hyman G. Rickover was the first test.  His story interweaves with the culture of the time, the Vietnam War, campus protests, the race with the Soviets to build deeper diving, quiter submarines, and a lot more.
