Rising Tide: The Untold Story Of The Russian Submarines That Fought The Cold War af Gary E. Weir
"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. Rising Tide tells the Soviet side of these secretive operations. Drawing on newly available archives, as well as interviews with a dozen former Soviet commanders - access never before granted to Western researchers - this narrative shows that confrontations between nuclear-armed subs were far more dangerous than we ever thought."."With sixteen pages of never-before-seen photos, Rising Tide 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 sank 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."--BOOK JACKET.
