• Atom-U-Boote der US Navy seit 1954

    In 1954, the USA achieved a technological milestone: with the NAUTILUS, the US Navy put the first nuclear-powered submarine in history into service. The flexibility of the new propulsion system revolutionised naval warfare, and the NAUTILUS and its successors became the model for hundreds of other ships worldwide.
    Today, the USA operates the largest submarine fleet in the world with around 70 units. In this book, naval expert and specialist author Lutz A. Kowalzick presents the nuclear-powered submarines of all classes in the US Navy, from their beginnings to the present day.
