‘It takes you through each nail-biting moment . . . heart-breaking, humane and, at times, all too vivid. I’ve rarely read such a gripping work of non-fiction’ COLIN FIRTH
____________________
At 11.30 a.m. on Saturday 12 August 2000, two massive explosions roared through the shallow Arctic waters of the Barents Sea. The
Kursk
, pride of the Northern Fleet and the largest attack submarine in the world, was hurtling towards the ocean floor.
In
Kursk
(originally published as A Time to Die), award-winning journalist Robert Moore vividly recreates this disaster minute by minute. Venturing into a covert world where the Cold War continues out of sight, Moore investigates the military and political background to the tragedy. But above all, he tells the nail-bitingly poignant human story of the families waiting ashore, of the desperate efforts of British, Norwegian and Russian rescuers, and of the
Kursk
sailors, trapped in the aft compartnemt, waiting for rescue, as a horrified world followed their battle to stay alive . . .
