The Cold War at Sea: High-Seas Confrontation between the United States and the Soviet Union, by David F. Winkler

Annapolis: Naval Institute Press, 2000. Pp. ix, 263. Illus, chron, notes, biblio., index. $38.95. ISBN:1-55750-955-7.

This volume – which has an unfortunately deceptive title –actually provides a survey history of the numerous "incidents" at sea between the U.S. and Soviet Navies which led the Incidents at Sea Agreement between the two nations in 1972, the workings of which are then traced through to the end of the Cold War. A useful book, but by no means a definitive history of the Cold War at sea.

Reviewer: A. A. Nofi
