Riassunto: (From outside back cover)
1963-The Cold War
Thresher was down! A hybrid United States Nuclear Attack Submarine loaded with SubRoc torpedoes, a 129-man crew, and millions of dollars of American technology, disappearedwithout a trace.
While conducting a deep dive test in the north Atlantic, her last sea trial prior to assignment to Combat Patrol, the U.S.S. Thresher (SSN-593) inexplicably was cut off in her last radio transmission.
After months of investigation, the United States Navy informed the American public, and the world, that the loss of the Thresher was an accident caused by a malfunctioning seawater pipe.
Butburied deep in the vaulted archives of the Pentagon is a volume of ultra-secret files that reveal much more about that suspect pipe and what really happened to the Thresher.
In Russia on the shore of Lake Baikal, lives a now older and retired Soviet Naval Officer who wore no ribbons of honor but has a similarly buried military file that documents his being awarded the Highest Medal of Valor to exist in the Soviet Military.
Why is the U.S. Government covertly hunting this Russian? Is there a link between him and the Thresher? Is there a different reason for the sinking of the Thresher?
Dall'editore: Anitov, by Robert E. Deremer is a fictional novel that tells about America's first loss of a nuclear submarine being caused by a foreign power act of sabotage, rather than an accident as reported by the U.S.Government. This narrative of Cold War undercurrents and aftereffects are intertwined around a solid foundation of historical fact, and serves to provoke innumerable questions for the reader.
Mr. Deremer offers a compelling story to support his speculation of this possible cover-up by the U.S. Government of the U.S.S. Thresher disaster in 1963. His experience working at a defense plant shipyard in a key access position helps to validate his conviction on the cause of this incident. Coupled with extensive research of the U.S.S. Thresher and related issues, he takes us into that domain that many, if not all, American's frequently ponder - Do we truly trust our Government? A read of Anitov will pose additional questionswas the Thresher disaster only the tip of the iceberg? During the Cold War, how many more American lives were lost in similar incidents of espionage and sabotage? Who was that affable gentleman that we stood behind in the grocery checkout line?
