A Time to Die: The Untold Story of the Kursk Tragedy
by Robert Moore

What happens when a Russian submarine, hailed for its great abilities at remaining undetected, causes large explosions detected around the world and then goes missing in waters it wasn’t really supposed to be in to begin with? The answer to that is a harrowing- and entirely true- tale, laid out wonderfully in this book by Robert Moore. He covers the mechanics of the disaster, as well as the social, political, and human aspects of the entire experience. Somehow, this book only proved to increase my interest in submarines rather than scare me off reading about them ever again.

Under pressure : the final voyage of the Submarine S-5   
by A.J. Hill

80 years before the Kursk, a U.S. submarine was in lonely waters off the Atlantic coast on a multi-day training mission. A faulty part sends in 75 tons of water before they are able to stop the flow and now a 231 foot submarine’s nose sinks to the bottom of the 180 foot deep sea. As the water rushes in, the oxygen rushes out, shortening the timeline they have in order to make a miracle happen and survive. Read this book to get all the details on how through grit and pure will they managed to survive.
