In this episode of the Pen and Sword podcast from Stratfor, a RANE company, Emily Donahue speaks to William Craig Reed about an event that happened 20 years ago, after the Cold War had ended and a few months before the United States and Russia sent the first crew to the International Space Station. The event was the explosion that sent the Russian nuclear submarine Kursk to the bottom of the Barents Sea.
William Craig Reed says the tragic accident wasn't the whole story of that event, and that we can learn much from what happened today. Reed is a former Navy diver and fast-attack submariner, and the author of "Red November."
