Post Run Silent: The Birth of a Nuclear Navy

Run Silent: The Birth of a Nuclear Navy

In the years after World War II, the U.S. Navy found itself with an aging fleet of diesel submarines ill-equipped to deal with the new rules of a new type of war, the Cold War.

This new faceoff with the Soviet Union emphasized espionage over confrontation, and electronic warfare over a torpedo shot. In secrecy and stealth, the submarine became the sentinel and remained vigilant for any rumbling of the Soviet bear.

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
