This is the first book to analyze the critical partnership among the Navy, industry, & science forged by World War II & responsible for producing submarines in the U.S. until 1961. Weir argues that the triangular naval, industrial, & scientific network that designed & built American submarines from 1940 to 1961 not only integrated the Navy & the submarine industry, but also promoted the involvement of many scientists who had the expert knowledge to develop submarine designs, systems, & instrumentation. The intimate professional relationships forged by global war, & the sense of purpose & urgency during the later Cold War, led to a period of remarkable innovation & productivity in the 16 years after 1945. B&W photos.
