In 1990 the Cold War ended - but not for the Submarine Service. Since June 1969, it has been the last line of national defence, with the awesome responsibility of carrying Britain's nuclear deterrent. From Polaris to Trident - and now 'Successor', this book provides an essential historical perspective.
