Editorial Reviews

Review

An unusual event occurred in December 1974 at the U.S. Navy's holiday party for foreign naval attaches, held in Bethesda, Maryland. At the party the Soviet naval attache approached the U.S. Navy captain who served as liaison officer for foreign naval attaches. The Soviet officer reportedly said that it was known that the United States had tried to raise the submarine K-129 and, if you go back there it would mean war. --Rear Admiral Edward D. Sheafer Jr., USN (Ret), former Director of Naval Intelligence

Norman Polmar, a great historian, and Michael White, a gifted TV producer and director, combine their talents to write what often reads like a great yarn except that it s true. It s a terrific story based partly on firsthand interviews of a not quite successful American technical coup and Soviet frustration at the height of the Cold War. Project Azorian re-creates a lost world. --John F. Lehman Jr., 65th Secretary of the Navy

What the Americans could possibly get if they [had] access to nuclear weapons, codes, torpedoes and mechanisms inside the submarine, welding technology, composition of metals,...let s start with the most important: if Americans did in fact lift the nose part then they should get the nuclear weapons, I mean, the special combat payloads of two torpedoes. It goes without saying, the torpedoes were crushed by the pressure of 570 atmospheres . . . but for specialists even debris can say a lot about the level of our nuclear technologies. --Rear Admiral Viktor A. Dygalo, Soviet Navy (Ret.)
