'One of the finest memoirs published in recent years.' Dan Jones 'An utterly fascinating and wonderfully detailed insight into the hidden world of the modern submarine.' James Holland A candid, visceral, and incredibly entertaining account of what it's like to live in one of the most extreme environments in the world. Imagine a world without natural light, where you can barely stand up straight for fear of knocking your head, where you have no idea of where in the world you are or what time of day it is, where you sleep in a coffin-sized bunk and sometimes eat a full roast for breakfast. Now imagine sharing that world with 140 other sweaty bodies, crammed into a 430ft x 33ft steel tube, 300ft underwater, for up to 90 days at a time, with no possibility of escape. And to top it off, a sizeable chunk of your living space is taken up by the most formidably destructive nuclear weapons history has ever known. This is the world of the submariner. This is life under pressure. As a restless and adventurous 18-year-old, Richard Humphreys joined the submarine service in 1985 and went on to serve aboard the nuclear deterrent for five years at the end of the Cold War.

But even in this most pressurised of environments, the consolations were unique: where else could you sit peacefully for hours listening to whale song, or... Based on first-hand experience, Under Pressure is the candid, visceral and incredibly entertaining account of what it's like to live, work, sleep, eat - and stay sane - in one of the most extreme man-made environments on the planet.
