Descrizione

On a foggy July evening in 1956, the Italian cruise liner Andrea Doria, bound for New York, was struck broadside by another vessel. In eleven hours, she would sink nearly 250 feet to the murky Atlantic Ocean floor. Thanks to a daring rescue operation, only 51 of more than 1,700 people died in the tragedy. But the Andrea Doria is still taking lives.

Considered the Mt. Everest of diving, the Andrea Doria is the ultimate deepwater wreck challenge. Over the years, a small but fanatical group of extreme scuba divers have investigated the Andrea Doria, pushing themselves to the very limits of human endurance to explore her—and not all have returned. Diver Kevin McMurray takes you inside this elite club with a hard, honest look at those who go deeper, farther, and closer to the edge than others would ever dream.

Deep Descent is the riveting true story of the human spirit overcoming human frailty and of fearsome, mortal risks traded for a hard-core adrenaline rush. Chronicling these adventures in his dramatic narrative, McMurray draws us deeper into the cold heart of the unforgiving sea, giving us a powerful vision of a place to which few will ever have the skills—or the courage—to go.

    Great book about a fabled sea tragedy and the continuing tragedy of divers who push themselves too far in the pursuit of prized relics from the lost vessel. The Andrea Doria lies virtually at the absolute possible depth for scuba diving. Reaching her takes an extraordinarily high level of technology and skill, and virtually any mistake guarantees a painful death. Yet dozens of divers keep trying, lusting for the prize of relics for the wreck, especially the ship's china, and as this book describes in chilling detail, many never live to return with their prizes.
