72 Hours, by Frank Pope
August 5th 2005. On a secret mission to an underwater military
installation thirty miles off the coast of Kamchatka, Russian Navy
submersible AS-28 ran into a web of cables and stuck fast. With 600 feet
of freezing water above them, there was no escape for the seven crew.
Trapped in a titanium tomb, all they could do was wait as their air
supply slowly dwindled. For more than twenty-four hours the Russian Navy
tried to reach them. Finally - still haunted by the loss of the nuclear
submarine Kursk five years before - they requested international
assistance....Can the Royal Navy help? And would they be reached in time?
This is an edge-of-your seat, real- life story of one of the most dramatic rescue missions of recent years!
