Random House presents the audiobook edition of Kursk: A Time To Die by Robert Moore, read by Pete Cross. At 11.30 a.m. on Saturday 12 August 2000, two massive explosions roared through the shallow Arctic waters of the Barents Sea. The Kursk, pride of the Northern Fleet and the largest attack submarine in the world, was hurtling towards the ocean floor. In Kursk (originally published as A Time to Die), award-winning journalist Robert Moore vividly re-creates this disaster minute by minute. Venturing into a covert world where the Cold War continues out of sight, Moore investigates the military and political background to the tragedy. But above all, he tells the nail-bitingly poignant human story of the families waiting ashore, of the desperate efforts of British, Norwegian and Russian rescuers, and of the Kursk sailors, trapped in the aft compartment, waiting for rescue, as a horrified world followed their battle to stay alive.... 1.

The vast expanses of southern Russia and the Ukraine provided the Eastern Front arena where the armies of Third Reich dictator Adolf Hitler and Soviet dictator Josef Stalin wrestled lethally for supremacy in 1943. Endless rolling plains - ideal ´´tank country´´ - vast forests, sprawling cities, and enormous tracts of agricultural land formed the environment over which millions of men and thousands of the era´s most formidable military vehicles fought for their respective overlords and ideologies. The winner could expect to reap very high stakes indeed. If Hitler´s Wehrmacht smashed the Red Army, he could no longer hope for a lightning conquest, but the Fuhrer could expect the Soviet strongman to sue for peace on terms advantageous to Germany. If, conversely, the Red Army triumphed, Stalin could continue rallying the Soviet Union and move closer to expelling the loathed ´´Nemets´´ invaders from Russian soil - and perhaps carve out a Soviet empire in Central Europe. 1.

As Mitchel James struggles to come to terms with the Kursk tragedy that claimed 118 Russian lives, he and his family relocate to Venezuela where he takes up a new role as military attaché to the US Embassy in Caracas. The move was supposed to be a new start for Mitchel, his wife Nathalie and their teenage daughter, Catherine – an escape from the horror of his last mission and the nightmares that continue to haunt him. But life is rarely that simple in the murky world of geopolitics. After stumbling upon a plot to overthrow the democratically-elected government of Hugo Chávez, Mitchel finds himself in the midst of a coup that his own country appears to be involved in. Propelled by a need to amend the wrongs of the past, Mitchel teams up with his best friend, the Venezuelan intelligence officer José Abrantes, in an effort to restore democratic power and avert further bloodshed in a thrilling race against time. Primarily a work of fiction based on fact, this is the second James Mitchel adventure novel. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dan Carroll.
