ROMANOV, D.A. Fire at Sea : The Tragedy of the Soviet Submarine Komsomolets. Edited by K.J. Moore. Translated by Jonathan E. Acus. Washington, DC: Po tomac Books, (2006). First US Printing. Pp. (4),v-xviii,1-267,(3). Illustrated. 8vo, blue cloth with metallic red lettering to spine. "On April 7, 1989, the Soviet nuclear submarine Komsomolets caught fire and sank while on its first patrol. The Soviet Navy claimed that numerous technical imperfections permitted by the vessel's designers and shipbuilders caused the accident, and they found no fault in the crew's behavior or training. Buoyed by Mikhail Gorbachev's glasnost, however, dissident voices rose to challenge this official view. The resulting controversy ruined careers destroyed personal and professional relationships, and divided a proud service." - from the dj. Very good in unclipped dust jacket. 20.00
