Editorial Reviews

As tensions escalated between the nuclear superpowers in the 1950's, the world below the oceans emerged as a front line in the Cold War. Featured on this DVD are historic films produced during this era showcasing the capabilities of the U.S. Navy as it adapted to meet the Soviet threat. Watch as a new generation of weapons systems, including the Regulus II supersonic cruise missile and the Polaris IRBM are developed. See the launching of the USS George Washington, the first of forty-one Polaris nuclear subs. See how the rotating Blue and Gold crews lived and worked in inner space, and witness the tension as a full-scale tactical launch drill is conducted. Also featured are two rare films showing the attack submarine USS Seadragon as it transits the Northwest Passage. In the Cold War below, even this remote frontier was a potential battleground. 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. Also, one of two featured Seadragon films is a rare crew home movie which has a somewhat rudimentary soundtrack.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Great look back at the era in which I served aboard USS George Washington. I watched some of these films as a naval cadet, and it brought back terrific memories.

Only aboout 35-45 minutes of film dedicated to FBM's,Hard to believe film was "digitally remastered" as quality,color, and definition are poor.
