New book, 354 pages. Of all the secrets the Soviet Union kept, none were more closely guarded than those involving their submarines. Throughout the Cold War, Soviet submariners patrolled the world's oceans, playing a deadly game of cat-and-mouse with their American counterparts in a silent struggle hundreds of feet below the surface. For the first time, this book tells the Soviet side of these secretive operations. Drawing on newly available, as well as interviews with a dozen former Soviet commanders - access never before granted to Western researchers - this gripping nuclear-armed subs were far more dangerous than we ever thought. With sixteen pages of never-before-seen photos, this book recounts successful Soviet operations, including top-secret exercises off the American coast, and espionage coups, such as the spy-ship that monitored American missile tests off the Florida coast and collected the debris in full view of the US Navy. All too common were the near-misses, heroic rescues, and deadly catastrophes that plagued Soviet submarines over the years, including the horrific nuclear accident on board the ill-fated K-19, later nicknamed the "Hiroshima"; the internal fire that sand the K-8 in 1970 with twenty-two sailors on board, and the dramatic escape of crewmembers from the Komsomolets in 1989, as narrated by a survivor. This book offers an extraordinary insider's history of the Soviet submarine service, and sheds new light on the darkest secrets of the Cold War.
