Dreadnought Britain's First Nuclear Powered Submarine


Dreadnought Britain's First Nuclear Powered Submarine by Patrick Boniface

HMS Dreadnought marked an important milestone in the history of the Royal Navy. Upon her commissioning in 1962, the Royal Navy entered the nuclear age. HMS Dreadnought was the epitome of the modern hunter killer submarine and Britain became only the third nation in the world to possess such a deadly weapon. In her 20 years of service, Dreadnought made history on numerous occasions. She became the first British nuclear submarine to surface at the North Pole and became the first to sail underwater all the way to Singapore. This book details the history of the design, construction and service career of this most important of Britain's post war nuclear vessels.
