Fascinating, mysterious and so real!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hide and Seek: The Untold Story of Cold War Naval Espionage (Hardcover)
When I started reading the synopsis-before purchasing the book- I didn't realise that there were so many things that were so simple and yet so real in naval espionage. The authors give a pretty good account of what was going on during the Cold War era as far as intelligence and counter-intelligence is concerned.
To be honest, the real interest for me lied at the first chapters (describing Stalin's vision of the post-war Soviet Navy) and at the facts describing the events during the 70s and 80s (actually not the espionage stories).
The part that moved me most was where the autohrs described the loss of the Komsomolets. Even though I'm not a submariner, I could feel the danger and the horror these seamen faced then (about 20 years ago).
Definitely recommended for anyone interested in Cold War era and the potential dangers for mankind in general.
A must buy.
