Description
For nearly 40 years, both the US and Soviet governments have continued to cover up the facts of the sinking of the USS Scorpion. It was no accident but rather reprisal for the sinking of the Soviet missile sub K-129, which had gone down in the Pacific just ten weeks previous. But both sides quickly realized that the sinkingif publicly knowncould have turned the Cold War into a very hot war. Scorpion Down is a grippingly told story of war, politics, personal loss, and governmental coverup.
