the man who saved the world

Very interesting. There was also another case later in the cold war where a Soviet radar commander received news that NATO had launched a first strike. The clever chap decided that it was probably faulty equipment and didn't notify his commanding officer.

Great read! Thanks for sharing. After reading it I decided to buy the book, Command and Control, it looks very interesting too.

Great read, thanks for sharing.

If you like silent service history, read "Blind Man's Bluff." It is a helluva read written by attack boat commanders constantly hunting silent adversaries as they too are hunted. As active sonar was rarely if ever used, sometimes these great boats would even collide as they went about there daily work of finding, following and trespassing... -R
