41 for Freedom

Examine the development and deployment of the ballistic missile submarine used by the U.S. This weapon’s platform, developed under the pressures of the Cold War in record time, rivaled the space program in innovation and complexity. 41 vessels, manned by 25,000 over a 33-year period prevented the Soviets from releasing a nuclear weapon and were instrumental in the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
