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.

Exhaustively researched does not make it interesting. I think the story was 12 CDs long, when the story could have been told in 2-3. American sub sank, Soviets might have sank it, might have been a cover-up. Went far too deep into the weeds and background of individual sailors, which did nothing to advance the overall story.
