Fall '05 Undersea Warfare Out
Even before it's officially winter, the Fall 2005 issue of Undersea Warfare magazine is out! It includes a good article on the loss of the Soviet Yankee-class boat K-219, as well as a discussion of the joy that is Midshipman ops.
Bell-ringer 2212 04 Dec: This is too kewl! Robin White, one of the authors of "Hostile Waters", the book about the loss of the K-219 that they made the movie from, provides his take on the Undersea Warfare article in the comments. I checked my copy of the book, and, as would be expected, he's right that the book never made the claim that USS Augusta collided with K-219. They do claim that Augusta snapped the tow cable attached to the Soviet boat; and, in the pictures section, the picture of Augusta is next to a picture of a Delta IV showing damage from a collision with a U.S. boat (I'm assuming the picture was of Novomoskovsk [K-407], which collided with USS Grayling in March 1993). This, coupled with the movie specifically featuring a collision, may have made people "remember" this about the book.
