9780099409984: Blind Mans Bluff

Veteran investigative journalist Sherry Sontag and award-winning New York Times reporter Christopher Drew finally reveal the exciting, epic story of adventure, ingenuity, courage and disaster beneath the sea. Blind Man's Bluff shows for the first time how the American Navy sent submarines wired with self-destruct charges into the heart of Soviet seas to tap crucial underwater telephone cables. Sontag and Drew unveil new evidence that the Navy's own negligence might have been responsible for the loss of the USS Scorpion, a submarine that disappeared, all hands lost, thirty years ago. They disclose for the first time details of the bitter war between the CIA and the Navy and how it threatened to sabotage one of America's most important undersea missions. They tell the complete story of the audacious attempt to steal a Soviet submarine with the help of eccentric billionaire Howard Hughes, and how it was doomed from the start. And Sontag and Drew reveal how the Navy used the comforting notion of deep-sea rescue vehicles to hide operations that were more James Bond than Jacques Cousteau. Stretching from the years immediately after World War II to the present-day spy operations of the Clinton Administration, Blind Man's Bluff reads like a spy thriller, but with one important difference - everything in it is true.

Recensione:

"Brilliant . . . Full of hair-raising stories of men in peril under the sea" ( Wall Street Journal)

"With materials combed from newspaper reports, American and Soviet archives, and the testimonies of officers and servicemen that could come forward only with the end of the Cold War, Blind Man's Bluff looks at one of the hottest theaters of that era--the ocean depths, and how submarines have been used by both the navy and the CIA to gather intelligence and launch covert operations" ( Kirkus Reviews)

"A compelling study of magnificent men and spying machines" ( New York Times Book Review)

"A long overdue, well deserved tribute to those unsung heroes of the U.S. Navy's 'silent service' with whom I was privileged to serve" (Lt. Cmdr. Roy H. Boehm, USN (ret.), creator of the U.S. Navy Seal Teams and author of First Seal)

"A real-life Hunt For Red October" ( New York Times)
