Resenhas

This is not at all the style of book I normally read, but it was excellent! I picked it up because it talks about several of the missions my elderly neighbor was on, and actually really enjoyed it. Interesting and a good overview for those who know nothing.

A collection of ripping yarns - and many insights into what was really happening in the Cold War. Blind Man's Bluff tells the story of US submarine spying from the perspective of the sailors involved. Each chapter moves us forward a few years and presents us with new characters and new adventures.

This is a story about some of the missions US spy submarines conducted against the Soviet Union during the cold war. Starting in the 50s some clever US submariners started equipping submarines for underwater clandestine missions apart from the normal "look at ships and shoot at them". This included recovering wrecks of subs and missiles underwater and tapping underwater communication channels.

Sherry Sontag tells the story well and in an interesting fashion and it was well worth the time. If anything, it leaves me wanting more, but by the definition, this is not something you can read about on Wikipedia, and in fact, I'm not sure what sources made this book come true. Some of it seems very badly supported by public records. I still believe all that is said though.… (mais)
