5.0 out of 5 stars A fitting memorial., 21 April 2003
This review is from: A Time to Die: The Untold Story of the Kursk Tragedy (Hardcover)
The truth, or as near as we will get, to the tragedy that had the nation glued to the television/news reports. How the cutbacks affecting the Russian Northern Fleet led to unsuccesful attempts to free the survivors and the delay in obtaining western assistance is explained in a factual manner that removes any doubt that there was any neglect on the part of the Russians with regards to the well-being of those trapped in the Kursk. As well as detailing the reasons for the reluctance of the Russians to allow western military personnel access to the Kursk, this book gives an easy-to-read account of the logistics involved in getting the Norwegian vessel and the British rescue sub to the Barents sea and an account of the problems faced by the rescue divers working at great depths, which are easy to understand even by those with no knowledge of diving physics or decompression problems. Very difficult to put down once started, this account of the Kursk tragedy serves as a fitting memorial to those who perished as well as highlighting the bond that exists between submariners and naval personnel, irrespective of their nationality.
