including the Confederate submarine Hunley, and USS Housatonic; U-20, the U-boat that sank the Lusitania; USS Cumberland,

which was sunk by the famous ironclad, CSS Virginia (ex-USS Merrimack); and the Cunard steamship Carpathia, first to reach survivors of the Titanic,

later sunk by German torpedoes off Ireland in 1918. In 1973 Cussler published his first novel featuring his recurring hero,

Dirk Pitt, in The Mediterranean Caper.

He wrote more than 85 books, reaching the New York Times fiction bestseller list over twenty times; they have been translated into more than forty languages.

Raise the Titanic! (1976), his breakthrough novel, was adapted for a movie, released in 1980.
