Red November Free download Ï 5 E Cold War earning raves from New York Times bestselling authors David Morrell who calls it “palpably gripping” and James Rollins who says “If Tom Clancy had turned The Hunt for Red October into a nonfiction thriller Red November might be the result?. I won this book in a First Reads giveawayIn this alternately frustrating and captivating work W Crag Reed selects some events from this history of Cold War submarine history to fill out the page count on a memoir of his and his father s lives First the strengths When Reed is not talking about his own family s history he does a solid if freuently formulaic job of discussing many events during the period he covers Best of these are the stories of four Soviet Foxtrot submarine captains during the Cuban Missile Crisis which provides a gripping and enlightening portrait of the harrowing experience through the enemy s eyes Sections on the Ivy Bells tapping Soviet communications cableswere almost as good but suffer from a case of superfluous information repetition and blunt foreshadowingThe weakest portion is the author s own family memoirs Containing too much background tangential notes and strained associations with greater events these portions told from a first person perspective drag out interesting contributions to dominate and diminish the overall work I have no doubt both the author and his father served honorably but the memoir style conflicts with the straight history told in other portions The author is right in that an authoritative work on Cold War submarine warfare would be a welcome addition Sadly this is not it

Red November Free download Ï 5 T underwater struggle between the US and the USSR in Red November A spellbinding  true life adventure in the bestselling tradition of Blind Man’s Bluff it reveals previously undisclosed details about the most dangerous daring and decorated missions of th. I received this book through a Goodreads online giveawayIn short this book is a collection of genuinely interesting and enlightening stories about cold war submarine history They are assembled in mostly chronological order from a variety of sources which included direct interviews with participants in the various events that are outlinedBecause of the high amount of jargon HAOJ and military acronym overload MAO I found myself referencing the index often to try to recall the meaning of previously decribed euipment and programs Therefore I would consider this of a military geek read definitely not for everyoneHowever I do enjoy history from the perspective of the man on the ground rather than from newspaper headlines and presidential transcriptsSome sections of the book perhaps strung together as they were to keep chronological continuity were thinner than other sections including the last chapter And the author s personal investment in some of the stories tended to lend importance to matters experienced by him and his family However in general it was an entertaining read
