Editorial Reviews

Review

“Polmar and Moore have produced an excellent history of the American and Soviet submarine forces that is both well-written and musters effective evidence to support its arguments…an excellent work for those interested in American and Soviet submarines, and it will be a valuable resource for amateur and academic historians alike for many years to come.”
Published On: 2008-03-06

"A compelling reference material and chronology of submarine designs as well as a look at the radically different approaches of the two competing superpowers."


"Outlining the evolution of the modern submarine in meticulous detail, Cold War Submarines is a serious reference for naval historians and a tribute to sub crews, designers, and builders. . . . The detailed research, personal interviews, and excerpts from declassified reports give the reader great insights into the contrasting ideologies and disparate political-economic systems that drove both navies in the Cold War."
