6 in stock



There is nothing more certain to give rise to damaging speculation than suppression of the facts.
In 1956 a Russian cruiser docked in Portsmouth Harbour carrying the Russian Premier, Nikita Khrushchev, to England on a diplomatic mission. Retired naval officer and decorated war hero, Commander Lionel ‘Buster’ Crabb, dived beneath the vessel to inspect it – against the express direction of the Prime Minister, Anthony Eden.

He failed to return.

A clumsy official cover-up ensued which spawned a plethora of conspiracy theories. So what really happened?
This book is the result of personal investigation and expert analysis of published material relating to the incident and its aftermath.
