Editorial Reviews

In the wake of WWII, an atomic revolution transformed the submarine. Featured on this DVD are five rare films showcasing the Navy's nuclear pioneers. Witness the launching of USS Nautilus the world's first "true" submarine, capable of staying underwater for months without refueling or surfacing. Watch as Nautilus fulfills its destiny, traveling under the North Pole in 1958. See the twin-reactor USS Triton as it circumnavigates the globe in 1960 without surfacing. See the USS Tunny launch a nuclear missile off its deck in 1950. The DVD concludes with a rare look at the new nuclear attack subs including USS Albacore, tasked with an all important mission: anti-submarine warfare. Digitally remastered and restored from original 16mm prints, many of these films have never been available to the public, and some have only recently been declassified. Please note, due to their age and rarity, image and sound quality can vary.This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.
