Editorial Reviews

This film explores the dramatic and little-known events that unfolded inside a nuclear-armed Soviet submarine during the Cuban Missile Crisis. While politicians sought a solution to the stand-off, Vasili Arkhipov, an officer aboard the submarine, refused to fire a nuclear torpedo, thus averting disaster. The program combines tense drama with eyewitness accounts and expert testimony about a critical event during the Cold War.

5.0 out of 5 stars Facinating January 25, 2013
I think that this episode is one of the best done by Secrets of the Dead. It was very interesting and chilling to know that one man prevented WWIII and possibly the destruction of the world. It's good to know a little something about the nuclear submarine K-19 (nicknamed the Widowmaker) before you watch this episode.
