Red Star Rogue | [Kenneth Sewell, Clint Richmond]

Red Star Rogue

Early in 1968, a nuclear-armed Soviet submarine sank in the waters off Hawaii, hundreds of miles closer to American shores than it should have been. Compelling evidence strongly suggests that the sub sank while attempting to fire a nuclear missile.

Publisher's Summary

One of the great secrets of the Cold War, hidden for decades, is revealed at last.

Early in 1968, a nuclear-armed Soviet submarine sank in the waters off Hawaii, hundreds of miles closer to American shores than it should have been. Compelling evidence strongly suggests that the sub sank while attempting to fire a nuclear missile.

We now know that the Soviets had lost track of the sub; it had become a rogue. The Nixon administration launched a clandestine, half-billion-dollar project to recover the sunken K-129. The successful recovery effort helped forge new relations between the U.S. and the Soviets, even as it revealed a treacherous plan to provoke war between the U.S. and China, a plan that, had it succeeded, would have had devastating consequences.

    Story
    "Interesting and Compelling Argument"

    The story is very interesting. The difficult issue is actually in the reader, Brian Emerson. Unfortunately, Mr. Emerson keeps adding emphasis at odd places almost as if he is not paying attention to the story. His pronunciation of some place names is also off, at least to my ear. Sadly, Mr. Emerson created an unnecessary distraction to this story.

    "Great oportunity missed"

    fascinating historic story not good written and not well narrated.
    i listen to it to its end because the subject is very interesting but too many boring details and monotonic voice made it a struggle.

    "A rivetting tale"

    This is a listen I could hardly put down. The facts are hard to verify by myself but the scenarios are fascinating and have stimulated me to look up more on the subject in written form. An excellent listen especially for those interested in submarine-related political subterfuge and intrigue!

    "Red Star Rogue"

    Interesting idea, but little more than circumstantial evidence to support it. There are at least two other theories that have equal, if not greater weight. Overall, it's a good listen. The author tries to add a human quality to the dry data. However, as other reviewers have stated, this idea would have been better suited as an article than a book. There is quite a bit of repetition as well as uneccesary filler.
