No espionage missions--from the Cold War through the Clinton administration--have been kept more secret than those involving American submarines. Only the President and a select few have known of their existence, and they accomplished some of the most astonishing intelligence coups of the century. For five years, with the Navy aggressively trying to block them, New York Times investigative reporter Christopher Drew and veteran journalist Sherry Sontag have chased this exciting, epic story of adventure, ingenuity, courage, and patriotism beneath the sea--and of missions gone awry and long covered up by the military and the U.S. government. In this book they introduce us to the submariners and scientists who silently spent their careers hunting for enemy subs, undersea cables to tap, weapons lost on the ocean floor, and other subs that had gone down, their doomed crews aboard. They tell of medals awarded in secret and deaths disguised with disinformation. And they offer important new information and perspective to anyone interested in American naval history, the Cold War, or post-Cold War espionage. An important work of history that reads like a novel, Blind Man's Bluff is a tale with all the excitement of a Tom Clancy novel and all the tragedy of Das Boot.
