Keenly abreast of the changing times technologically and scientifically, the PNS has seen its mission evolve from constructing wooden sailing ships to repairing and overhauling nuclear-powered, missile-firing submarines. This is the first full-length account of the Yard’s history since 1978. Amply illustrated with many heretofore-unpublished photographs, this book demonstrates that the Yard’s long, distinguished history mirrors that of the nation itself-a success story with a record of achievement.
