K-19 : the widowmaker : the secret story of the Soviet nuclear submarine by Peter A Huchthausen( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and Thai and held by 790 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Soviet nuclear submarine K-19 was the pride of the Soviet Navy, but on July 4, 1961, during its maiden voyage to the North Atlantic for war games, it suddenly and unexpectedly developed a serious leak in one of the reactors. In a race against time, the officers and crew worked desperately and brilliantly, under intense exposure to radiation, to improvise a coolant system, averting a Chernobyl-like nuclear disaster. The toll for their efforts was certain and devastating: Eight men died painful deaths from acute radiation poisoning within days of the accident, and the surviving crew returned home to await their unknowable fate. Featuring a complete history of the actual events, with passages from the submarine captain₂s memoir, and rarely published historic images, K-19 places readers at the apex of the Cold War₂s brinkmanship between the USSR and the United States. It is the companion book to the upcoming National Geographic feature film about this gripping tragedy, K-19: The Widowmaker, starring Harrison Ford and Liam Neeson. Including information on the making of the film, with production stills, and cutaway drawings of the submarine, this powerful volume combines authoritative history and the magic of moviemaking to give the reader the real backstory to K-19

Echoes of the Mekong by Peter A Huchthausen( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Peter Huchthausen, a patrol officer of a two-boat river patrol, and his crew, rescued a badly wounded Vietnamese child, Nguyen Thi Lung. Huchthausen and his men arranged for Lung's treatment and education, only to lose track of her when her town was overrun by the North Vietnamese during the Tet Offensive." "After the war, Lung led a difficult and shadowy life under the communist regime. Finally, in 1982, she managed to smuggle a letter and photograph to Sylvana Foa, then a reporter for United Press International. Ms. Foa, now Spokesman for the Secretary General of the United Nations, published Lung's story and assisted her departure from Vietnam, while Huchthausen sponsored her entry into the United States." "In alternating chapters, Huchthausen and Lung recall the experience of war on the vast Mekong River while Lung recalls the terrifying years that followed. Echoes of the Mekong casts a fresh light on the American involvement in Vietnam as it follows two people caught in the war from youth to maturity."--Jacket
