Summary
In 1968, a Soviet submarine sank off Hawaii. Evidence strongly suggests that the sub sank while attempting to fire a nuclear missile, most likely at Pearl Harbor. U.S. intelligence was able to recover the sunken sub, which was attempting to mimic a Chinese submarine, almost certainly with the intention of provoking a war between the U.S. and China
Summary
In 1968 a Soviet submarine sank off Hawaii, hundreds of miles closer to American shores than it should have been. Compelling evidence strongly suggests that the sub sank while attempting to fire a nuclear missile. We now know that the Soviets had lost track of the sub; it had become a rogue. The Nixon administration launched a clandestine, half-billion-dollar project to recover the sunken K-129. The successful recovery effort helped forge new relations between the U.S. and the Soviets, even as it revealed a treacherous plan to provoke war between the U.S. and China - a plan that, had it succeeded, would have had devastating consequences
