The Untold Story of American Submarine Espionage

Book - 1998
Average Rating:
Rate this:
Over the course of five years, investigative reporters Sherry Sontag and Chris Drew interviewed hundreds of men who had never spoken about their underwater lives--not even to their wives and children. They uncovered a wealth of classified information: the tapping of undersea Soviet telephone cables, the stealing of Soviet weapons, the tragic collisions of enemy submarines. They tell of medals awarded in secret and deaths disguised with disinformation. Blind Man's Bluff is a critical work of history that reads with all the excitement of a Tom Clancy novel and all the tragedy of Das Boot.

As nuclear plant operator for a few years I worked with a number of former Navy nukes. A few had told me they'd been in Russian waters but I never knew they were doing this sort of stuff as the book describes.

Great Book
