Awesome book!!!! Don't let the cover fool you - it's not about the movie. Written from the diary of the actual K19 skipper, it details the USSR's quest for naval surpremacy at all costs.Details the start up of their navy; the shoody workmanship, the lack of training and safety protocols and the cover ups.
If you're looking for a novelization of the movie by the same title, this book might not be what you're looking for. However, if you're looking for a brief overview of the Soviet nuclear submarine program and the disasters that have taken place during its building, this may be your book.Though it does focus primarily on the K-19 incident in 1961, the book also discusses other disasters that involved Soviet nuclear-powered maritime vessels that occurred during the Cold War. For me, reading the bo [...]
Tyler Strandberg 3rdK-19: The Widowmaker by Peter A. HuchthausenI choose to read another original by Peter A. Huchthausen, K-19: The Widowmaker. It is one of his better books, but for some readers may seem quite bland. It takes place in the year 1961, when the nuclear race with Russia was at its highest tension point. This book was good, bad, dull, exciting, and filled with many more feelings. It follows the story of Captain Alexei Vostrikov and Mikhail Polenin. In the beginning the story goes [...]
A compelling, quick read--even for those who aren't that interest in engineering. The idea of submarines makes me a little uncomfortable, and the thought of one with a nuclear reactor on board makes me even more so. I had no idea there had been so many Soviet sub incidents, although I am not entirely surprised. Although this book has very technical aspects, it reads like a novel. I expected the book's focus to be more definitively on K-19. That particular sub does take up a hefty chunk of the pa [...]
An interesting read that suffers from some clumsy writing and poor editing. The subject matter is certainly interesting, and actually quite frightening. More than just a discussion of the K19 itself, the book gives a total overview of the criminally inept Soviet nuclear submarine and ship program. It is truly frightening to read how poorly the former USSR handled this dangerous material.It is certainly enough to make even this supporter of nuclear energy think seriously about how it should be co [...]
Very informative book relating to russian development of nuclear powered submarines. There are a lot of very tragic stories concerning the russian military's push for superior fighting vessel. I thought the book was really good, but really sad as well.
Let's be honest , the first thing that make me reading it is the title (widow maker), looks like will be a massacre and a lot of bloody views.It is a historical true story , great full to read it and going to see the movie after word.
Don't know if I'll be finishing this one. The writing is overly technical and incredibly boring. Hopefully we'll move past the submarine diagrams and into some good stuff.
Don't remember much about it.This note was added years after reading the book.Newmarket library.
Very interesting - but I preferred his k219 or (by other authors) "Blind man's bluff"
