The bedford incident. Published by agreement with the Mark Rascovich literary estate. This book is affectionately dedicated to Gwen and Ed Rigg whose kind understanding and warm friendship have gone far beyond the call of duty of ordinary in-laws! Author’s note. Some of the anti-submarine warfare techniques and equipment described in this work have been deliberately obscured.

The "Bedford Incident" tells the tale of the titular ship, a US Destroyer during an epic hunt for a Russian submarine. The Bedford has the firepower to sweep the red sub away like so much dust on the sea. But cold war politics and some substantial realities require that the Bedford do no more than track the sub.

This was posted as very good....they should have added for it''s age and original quality. It was a cheap print from 1964 feom a book club. It had been resold for a dollar at some point. Small print almost unreadable. Paper is acidic so the pages are tan brown color.
It wasn't a good hard or softbound edition yet the description kinda suggested it was.
Buyer beware I guess. I threw it away on receipt.

The Bedford Incident is one of my favorite movies. I had to buy the book it was based on to see the differences. Some of the dialog in the movie was taken word for word from the book, and the movie followed pretty closely until the end.
This author is a great writer, and the movie script did him great honor by not changing much of his writing.

Good book. It was somewhat different from the movie, but not in a bad way. I like both versions, which is rare for me. I hate when a movie destroys a good book. Or when a remake trashes the original(Total Recall, Planet of the Apes with Wahlberg).

Differs significantly from the movie and in a better way. I will not reveal the differences, since they are crucial to the book and not in the movie.

Excellent service, just what I wanted. It came promptly and was in excellent shape, exactly as advertised. So I was pleased and the price was good.

I really liked the ending of the book better than the movie. Having the West German commander destroy the Bedford was a much better ending to the story than the Bedford and the Russian Sub mutally sinking one another. I also liked the character development of the Correspondent , and the English Officer.

The "Bedford Incident" tells the tale of the titular ship, a US Destroyer during an epic hunt for a Russian submarine. The Bedford has the firepower to sweep the red sub away like so much dust on the sea. But cold war politics and some substantial realities require that the Bedford do no more than track the sub. More than mere politics, the Bedford's obsessed captain knows that the Russian sub, running on diesel-electric engines, can endure no more than hours submerged before it must surface to recharge. With the Red Navy soon to become nuclear-powered, the Bedford knows that its latest find may be its last easy catch. "Easy" becomes illusory as the Bedford fights a war of nerves against the Russian crew while battling cruel northern seas and endless ice. Rascovich never shows us the Russian crew, only the tensions faced by the Americans, and the seams that are quickly becoming undone.
"Bedford" recalls Moby Dick, but it actualy belongs to a small genre of war-thrillers involving hunter killer subs in cold northern seas, great books like Poyer's "The Circle" and "HMS Ulysses" by Maclean. The book was turned into a greta moview starring Richard Widmark as the Bedford's tormented captain and Sidney Poitier as the civilian photojournalist who quickly becomes his conscience. Both book and film are classics.
I enjoyed this book very much. As I approached the end I got the feeling about how it would end. No spoilers. It ended as I anticipated and felt good about it. They don't call me Ismael for nothing.
