A Matter of Risk, by R Varner and W Collier

A Matter of Risk, The incredible inside story of the mission to raise a Russian submarine.
Roy Varner and Wayne Collier

Account of the CIA mission to raise the Russian Golf-II submarine which sank in 1968. Neither the Russian nor US governments have officially acknowledged either the sinking or the recovery attempt and how much may or may not have been recovered. This book was written because of the authors’ conviction that the ‘… American public has a right to judge whether their government’s activities are in the nation’s best interest…’
