Forty years ago, during the height of the Cold War, a U.S. submarine sank under mysterious circumstances with a loss of ninety-nine lives. Now, drawing on exclusive interviews and newly declassified U.S. and Soviet intelligence files, Sewell and Preisler explain what really happened to the Scorpion, and why the truth has been officially denied for forty years. In March 1968, a Soviet sub mysteriously sank near Hawaii, hundreds of miles from its normal station. Mistakenly believing that the U.S. was responsible, the Soviets plotted revenge. Using a valuable cryptographic unit that had been stolen from a U.S. intelligence ship to intercept classified naval communications, the Russians set a trap for the Scorpion.
