Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Kenneth Sewell

Narrated By: Brian Emerson

Date: December 2005

Duration: 12 hours 18 minutes

Summary:

One of the great secrets of the Cold War, hidden for decades, is revealed at last. Early in 1968, a nuclear-armed Soviet submarine sank in the waters off Hawaii, hundreds of miles closer to American shores than it should have been. Compelling evidence strongly suggests that the sub sank while attempting to fire a nuclear missile.

We now know that the Soviets had lost track of the sub; it had become a rogue. The Nixon administration launched a clandestine, half-billion-dollar project to recover the sunken K-129. The successful recovery effort helped forge new relations between the US and the Soviets, even as it revealed a treacherous plan to provoke war between the US and China—a plan that, had it succeeded, would have had devastating consequences.

    I'm amazed that I got through all this. I suppose it is all too real, and that frightens me. How on Earth can you pick a President from the choices politicians give us ? It can't be left to the people to fix this mess. We are going to need help that is not visible on any horizon. We need a good reason to act as one people, as opposed to acting for one side, or State. We have spent enough time pushing each other around. But we may be smart to act early against terrorist regimes. If we can find them we can and should (my opinion ) end them. We will have to learn a new type of defense.
