    Excellent view into the Silent Service

    The video producers take you underway on nuclear power onboard the the Los Angeles class nuclear submarine, USS Rickover (SSN-709). A very realist depiction of the life & training of a submarine sailor. Also includes interviews with some of the legendary leaders including Admirals Rickover, McKee, & Wilkerson, as well as the some of the famous commanders from WWII.
