Episode Summary

In 1975, The Sentry, a state-of-the-art Russian warship, was taken over by a rogue Soviet officer. This remarkable mutiny not only inspired the best-selling political thriller and the Sean Connery/Alec Baldwin blockbuster, “The Hunt for Red October,” it almost triggered World War III. For the first time, we reveal stories of bravery and tragedy firsthand, from the men aboard the warship and the officers who ordered its destruction.moreless
