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 close to American shores. Compelling evidence strongly suggests that the sub, which we now know was a rogue, sank while attempting to fire a nuclear missile. The clandestine, half-billion-dollar U.S. project to recover the sub helped forge new relations with the Soviets-even as it revealed a treacherous plan that, had it succeeded, would have had devastating consequences.
