Summary:
"In the early hours of June 24, 1944, U.S. Navy warplanes patrolling the Atlantic attacked a Japanese submarine known as the I-52. But this was more than the sinking of another enemy warship. It was an event of enormous strategic importance. For the I-52's mission was to return to Japan with the lethal ingredients of a doomsday weapon - the radiological bomb - which remained a government secret for years."

Abstract:

"In the early hours of June 24, 1944, U.S. Navy warplanes patrolling the Atlantic attacked a Japanese submarine known as the I-52. But this was more than the sinking of another enemy warship. It was an event of enormous strategic importance. For the I-52's mission was to return to Japan with the lethal ingredients of a doomsday weapon - the radiological bomb - which remained a government secret for years."

"The I-52's resting place - 18,000 feet below the surface of the mid-Atlantic - became public in 1995, when discovered by ship salvager Paul Tidwell. Author Richard N. Billings has worked with Tidwell - whose attempts to raise the I-52's precious gold cargo continue - in bringing her secret mission to light. Finally, this is the story of how the I-52 mission may have influenced President Truman's decision to drop atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, thereby saving the United States from a similar fate."--Jacket.
