Sobre o livro
The incredible true story of a lost Russian submarine and the most outlandish and expensive covert operation ever undertaken by the CIA, at the height of the cold war. In late February of 1968, a Russian submarine, holding a battery of three ballistic missiles with enough nuclear material to create an explosion 50 times greater than Hiroshima, disappeared in the Pacific Ocean. The Soviet Navy used, ships, subs, and planes in an enormous search of open ocean, in stormy seas, where the depth ranged up to 18,000 feet. But they were looking in the wrong place. The US Navy, meanwhile, had been watching and intelligence officials knew the sub had been lost.
