The second edition of Serving the Silent Service: The Legend of Electric Boat, by noted industrial historian Jeffrey L. Rodengen, takes an updated, comprehensive look at the early years, evolution, and contemporary contributions of Electric Boat, a division of General Dynamics Corporation. Chronicling the swiftly paced development of the submarine technologies that helped the United States dominate the seas, the book offers revealing glimpses into the post-World War II travails at Electric Boat, when dwindling demand forced the company to diversify into a patchwork of products that included automatic pin-setters for bowling alleys. The book also captures the high drama of the Nuclear Age of submarines when Electric Boat and the enigmatic father of the Nuclear Navy, Admiral Hyman G. Rickover, were key players.
