During the Cold War, nuclear submarines performed the greatest public service of all: prevention of a third world war. History shows that they succeeded; the Cold War ended peacefully, but for security reasons, only now can this story be told. 

Eric Thompson is a career nuclear submarine officer who served from the first days of the Polaris missile boats until after the end of the Cold War. His book is rich in both drama and comedy, and tells the inside story of Britain’s nuclear deterrent, the secretive life of submarines and the men who served on them.
