‘War of the Whales’ by Joshua Horwitz is our #NewBookoftheWeek

51l6fybhbgl-_sx331_bo1204203200_You can find a copy of, War of the Whales: a true story, on the “New Book Shelf” in Waterfield Library.

Two men face off against an all-powerful Navy—and the fate of the ocean’s most majestic creatures hangs in the balance.

War of the Whales tells the true story of how a crusading environmental attorney, Joel Reynolds, stumbles on one of the US Navy’s best-kept secrets: a submarine surveillance system that floods entire ocean basins with high-intensity sound. After marine biologist Ken Balcomb witnesses a mysterious mass stranding of whales near his research station in the Bahamas, he must confront an oath of secrecy he swore to the Navy in his youth.

When Balcomb and Reynolds team up to expose the truth behind an epidemic of mass strandings, the stage is set for a climactic showdown that pits admirals against activists, rogue submarines against weaponized dolphins, and national security against the need to safeguard the ocean environment.
