All Hands Down

All Hands Down

The True Story of the Soviet Attack on the USS Scorpion

From the author of Red Star Rogue, the controversial account of the destruction of the USS Scorpion, the nuclear submarine that sank with ninety-nine crewmen aboard in 1968—an event that was officially attributed to accident.

The tragedy of the USS Scorpion—and the lingering mystery of what caused it to sink in 10,000 feet of water on the eastern edge of the Sargasso Sea—has been widely written about. All Hands Down shows how the Soviet plot to exact revenge for the loss of a Russian sub was executed and explains why the truth of the attack has been officially denied for forty years. Sewell and Preisler debunk various official explanations for the tragedy and bring to life the personal stories of some of the men who were lost when Scorpion went to the bottom.
