The U.S. submarine force has always been keenly aware of a particular threat -- men trapped in a submarine that is stranded on the ocean floor. To prepare for that eventuality, the Navy trains personnel for individual escape and for rescue by a chamber from the surface. The operation order that covered search and rescue of submariners was identified Exercise 1000. If an actual disaster struck, it could no longer be termed an exercise and would be designated Event 1000.

This is a novel about a US Nuclear Submarine stranded at the bottom of the Atlantic just off the East Coast. For those familiar with marine terminology it reads fairly easy - for others the verbage can be a little confusing. Nevertheless, the story is gripping and captivates your attention.

I have not read the book Event 1000 yet, but I have seen the film "Gray Lady Down" which is based upon this book. I gave a four star rating since this is what I give the film in spite of numerous mistakes made about protocols regarding nuclear powered submarines. Charleton Heston shines as the commanding officer of a submarine heading back to port for the last time under his command. Mistake number one is that the executive officer will be taking command of the submarine. This does not happen in real life. An XO is not given command of the same submarine where he has served as XO. Under the very foggy conditions at sea, a commanding officer possessing any kind of common sense and following his training would have given the order submerge the submarine the first time a surface contact was noted, but that could not be seen due to heavy fog. In spite of other errors, this film shows what can happen to a submarine that sinks nearly to crush depth and the amazing rescues that can be done to save most crew members trapped by a sunken submarine. The title "Gray Lady Down" was a code used at one time {may still be in use}to let submarine fleet commands know that a submarine is down, maybe lost.
