Cold War Submarines: The Design and Construction of U.S. and Soviet Submarines

£45.00

Product description

Cold War Submarines: The Design and Construction of U.S. and Soviet Submarines
Norman Polmar and K J Moore
Brassey’s Inc, Washington, DC, 2004.
Hardback; 210 x 285 mm; black boards with red titles on spine; xxiv & 407 pages. Original unclipped dust jacket. Profusely illustrated with photographs and technical drawings in monochrome.
The book is in very good condition. The binding is sound and the printing is on good quality glossy paper. The dust jacket has slight bumping to its edges. Internally there is foxing and discoloration of the jacket which may be due to damp. This has marked the top left corner of the back cover of the book but it has not affected the contents of the book which remain clean and bright.
This book, written in collaboration with the former Soviet submarine design bureaus, authoritatively demonstrates how differing submarine missions, anti-submarine priorities, levels of technical competence, and approaches to submarine design organizations and management caused divergence. With more than 270 photographs and illustrations, Cold War Submarines provides a fascinating read and an indispensable reference to all of the submarine designs produced by the US and USSR during the Cold War era.
