Blind Man's Bluff: the Untold Story of American Submarine Espionage Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Blind Man's Bluff: the Untold Story of American Submarine Espionage

The authors uncover a portion of the secret history of the Cold War: how US (and to some extent Soviet) submarines dodged and feinted beneath the world's oceans for four decades or more. There are thrilling accounts of near collisions, submarine chases, of laying spy cables on the ocean floor ... and ghastly accounts of sailors crushed by the collapse of their home under the ocean's water pressure (and, because of the nature of their work, their families did not learn what had happened to them until many years later). Some things never change, though: the pair of top-secret camera-rigged fish on the "Seawolf" were known as "Happy" and "Linda," after the Happy Hooker and Linda Lovelace. A strange and sobering story.
