Cold is The Sea by Edward L. Beach is part of a series of books on submarines he wrote based on his own experience as a submarine commander, during and after WW2. His most famous book is Run Silent, Run Deep, and also Dust on the Sea (IIRC). He also noted for being the Commanding Officer of USS Triton (SSRN-586) on her circumnavigation of the world in 84 days, all done while the submarine was submereged.
Thanks for the additional information. I always try to keep my eyes out for books by the same author as ones I have added to the list, though in some cases like John Watson (Ugh!) it's not always worth the search.
