9780061806773: Red November: Inside the Secret U.S.-Soviet Submarine War

In this riveting popular history, W. Craig Reed pulls back the curtain on the most secret aspects of America's Cold War with the Soviet Union: the underwater battles and espionage operations that brought the world to the brink of nuclear warfare numerous times. As a former submariner and navy diver, Reed is the first author to obtain in-depth interviews from dozens of Navy SEALS and divers, espionage operatives, submariners, and government officials on both sides about Ivy Bells, Boresight, Bulls Eye, and Holystone operations. Through in-depth research and his own first-hand experience, Reed sheds new light on the most harrowing and exciting missions conducted during the Cold War. Reading like a fast-paced Tom Clancy thriller, "Red November" transcends traditional submarine, espionage, and naval Cold War historical accounts by delivering a far more personal touch to the near-death experiences told by the men and women who participated in America's longest and most expensive underwater war.

Review:

“This history of the cold war beneath the sea reads very much like a thriller.... For serious submarine buffs, a feast.” (Booklist)

Red November is palpably gripping and packs the excitement of a real-life thriller. I felt like I was literally on-board a submarine in the middle of a hair-raising mission and on the brink of World War III.” (David Morrell, bestselling author of The Shimmer)

“If Tom Clancy had turned The Hunt for Red October into a nonfiction thriller, W. Craig Reed’s Red November might be the result.... Not to be missed!” (James Rollins, bestselling author of The Doomsday Key)

“This is an astonishing and important book.... Red November is a book that anyone with an interest in espionage or clandestine naval operations should read.” (George Friedman, author of America’s Secret War and The Next 100 Years)

Red November delivers the real life feel and fears of submariners who risked their lives to keep the peace. Smart, detailed, and highly entertaining, this is a story everyone should read.” (Steve Berry, author of The Paris Vendetta)

Red November is a terrific, real-life thriller, filled with larger than life warriors, technological wizardry, undersea games of chicken, and a civilian world perched unknowing on the brink of push-button nuclear destruction.” (Barry Eisler, author of Fault Line)

From the Back Cover:

The world came close to annihilation during the Cold War—a sobering fact known to few besides the warriors engaged in the forty-six-year conflict. In this riveting new history, former U.S. Navy diver and fast-attack submariner W. Craig Reed provides a thrilling narrative of the tense underwater dramas and covert espionage operations that brought the United States and the former U.S.S.R. to the brink of nuclear war on several occasions.

Riveting and eye-opening, Red November offers an intimate look at the lives of those who participated in our country’s longest, most expensive underwater war during one of the most dangerous eras in world history. Reed provides never-before-revealed details about some of the most dramatic episodes of the secret conflict—from the harrowing underwater cat-and-mouse chase in October 1962 that almost kicked off World War III to the desperate hours when the USS Seawolf sat grounded by engine failure at the bottom of the sea during an espionage mission in Soviet waters.
