5 MOORE, Robert Time to Die : The Untold Story of the Kursk Tragedy. First Canadian Edition in dustjacket
Random House Canada, Toronto, 2003, ISBN:0679312021 
MOORE, Robert. A Time to Die : The Untold Story of the Kursk Tragedy. [Mississauga, ON]: Random House Canada, (2003). First Printing. Pp 271 + [8] pp of plates. 8vo, black paper covered boards. An account of the deadliest submarine disaster in history. Moore, who had exclusive access to top Russian military figures, presents a detailed chronicle of the heroic attempts to rescue the 23 remaining crew members. "At 11:28 A.M. on Saturday, August 12,2000, high in the Arctic Circle, under the roiling surface of the Barents Sea, Captain Gennady Lyachin was taking the Kursk, pride of Russia's elite Northern Fleet, through the last steps of firing a practice torpedo, part of an elaborate naval exercise. Suddely, the torpedo exploded in a massive fireball, instantly incinerating all seven men in the submarine's forward compartment. The horror, however, was just beginning. The full, gripping story of the remarkable drama inside the Kursk and all of the desperate rescue efforts has never been told - until now. In A Time to Die, a critically acclaimed bestseller in the United Kingdom, international reporter Robert Moore - who covered the Kursk tragedy from Russia as it happened - draws on exclusive access he obtained to top Russian military figures in telling the inside story of the disaster with the factual depth of the best journalism and the compelling moment-by-moment tension of a thriller. He takes us right down inside the Kursk as two massive explosions - the second measuring 3.5 on the Richter scale - rip through compartment after compartment.
