Praise

“What is striking is the human tragedy: the bravery of the crew, the effect of the tragedy on those ashore, the dramatic and doomed rescue attempts, and the chilling fate of the 23 survivors of the initial explosion. . . . Harrowingly detailed.”Times (London)
 
“Remarkable for its subject matter and style . . . Written in the tight, lean style that exemplifies excellent journalism . . . Expertly narrated, and the story’s excitement and drama persist through straightforward and unadorned language.”—Associated Press

“A bleak but thrilling history of the greatest naval bungle of our time.”Sunday Times (South Africa)
 
“A harrowing account . . . a gripping read, written in the style of a thriller, which serves as a fitting memorial to the lost sailors and as an indictment of Russia’s military and political leaders. The book crackles with the authority of two years’ solid research.”New Zealand Herald

“Combining forensic evidence with the laws of physics, Moore masterfully re-creates the doomed sailors’ final hours. . . . Readers might find themselves ignoring what they already know about the outcome and hoping against hope that some of the trapped sailors will be found alive.”BookPage

“[Moore] has made good use of his experience as a journalist and his contacts to write a gripping account that reads in parts like a well-researched thriller.”Times Literary Supplement (London)
 
“Moore [tells] a compelling story, making vivid the experiences of the submariners, their families, and the many men—Russian, Norwegian, and British, military and civilian—who strove to save them. His description is clear and excruciating; the possibility of life inside the hull is palpable in these pages.”Evening Standard (London)
