Hello All,

Looking for recommendations on good submarine books set during the Cold War, particularly from the Soviet perspective.

Cheers,

LRB

Blind Man's Bluff has some from the Soviet side, especially the collision between K-108 and Tautog. Another about K-131 in the Med during the Six-Day War.

There's also the book K-19: The Widowmaker, which came out with the movie.

Also "Hostile Waters" by Peter Huchthausen about the K-219 accident in the Atlantic.

I like this about about the sub's entry on Wiki:

Quote:
In 1988, the Soviet hydrographic research ship Keldysh positioned itself over the wreck of K-219, and found the submarine sitting upright on the sandy bottom. It had broken in two, aft of the conning tower. Several missile silo hatches had been forced open, and the missiles, along with the nuclear warheads they contained, were gone.


Someone did a naughty thing... :twisted:

Boyne's Rising Tide is readable, but I do wonder about the accuracy.
