The Taking of K-129

Author: Josh Dean

Glomar Explorer Glomar Explorer
An incredible true tale of espionage and engineering set at the height of the Cold War—a mix between The Hunt for Red October and Argo—about how the CIA, the U.S. Navy, and America’s most eccentric mogul spent six years and nearly a billion dollars to steal the nuclear-armed Soviet submarine K-129 after it had sunk to the bottom of the Pacific Ocean; all while the Russians were watching.

The Taking of K-129 is a riveting, almost unbelievable true-life tale of military history, engineering genius, and high-stakes spy-craft set during the height of the Cold War, when nuclear annihilation was a constant fear, and the opportunity to gain even the slightest advantage over your enemy was worth massive risk.

Writer Josh Dean will visit the department for the new Community Project. He'll be joined by NAME alumni who worked on this unbelievable project, including Chuck Cannon, Charlie Canby and John Hollett.
