Based on true events, ICE-X'86: Freezing the Cold War tells of a top-secret mission: a team of young engineers who face insurmountable odds-ice storms, polar bears, military bias, espionage, fear and self-doubt-while launching torpedoes from the surface of the Arctic ice pack. Will secret torpedo tests help to mitigate the Cold War's greatest threat, or will a rogue Russian submarine that interrupts the mission spark international retaliation and something even worse?

"Of all the high level, vital and extremely challenging programs of my military/federal career, the ICE-X project tops the list. I was honored to lead this team of dedicated engineers to successfully overcome the design, logistics and tactical impossibilities of the Arctic environment and prove the U.S.'s capabilities against a very serious and real world threat."
-Actual ICE-X team leader (Alex Trinola in the story).

"What a terrific adventure! We had no idea the ramifications of these tests until the top-secret mission was over."
-Len Morini, ICE-X team design engineer, 1986.

"Only time will tell the full strategic significance of these tests at the top of the world-how they will influence the course of history."
-Secretary of the Navy, John F. Lehman Jr., Arctic Circle, 1986.

"This story brought back memories of the exciting times I had aboard the USS Hawkbill-the 666 Devil Boat-a worthwhile adventure."
-Thomas D. Warner, Navy Chief (Ret.)
