A friend who worked on submarines recommended this book and said many of the facts are true from his experience and what he heard through his navy career. Still the book could of been cut in half at least. I kept thinking to myself. "You said that already move on" If you like subs and sub stories like I do, it is a MUST READ. I would recommend "Blinds Man Bluff" next.

The real story of the submarine K-129 - as told in this book - is important, startling and deserves to be known. Unfortunately, the available facts of the case can support little more than a long magazine article. As a result, the book is quite repetitive. One can feel the author straining to fill the pages. Further, he mixes fact and 'speculative re-creation' too freely in the first half, leaving it unclear what is Definitely True as opposed to Probably True. Nonetheless, this book tells an amazing story with far-reaching and historic implications. A must-read for enthusiasts of Cold War history.

Excellent coverage of a topic, of which, not much was known. The information contained is overwhelming in detail, and one assumes, accuracy. It does manage to connect the dots for a number of already known facts and reveals a rather sinister, if not frightening, plot.
How one event in history can affect global relations is truly fascinating.
Superb, and engaging writing, and well worth a listen to.
