The Cold War started in 1945 near the end of World War II, after a meeting of the “Big Three”; the United States, Great Britain and the Soviet Union. It ended in 1991 with the fall of the Soviet Union. This book describes the major evolutionary changes, and the reasoning behind those changes, for United States submarines from the start of the Cold War through today. The book is visually oriented and consists mainly of photographs accompanied by captions or small blocks of text. The descriptions are intentionally basic with minimal technical jargon. It is a “coffee table” book. Size: 13" x 11"
