The Submarine Review

The Submarine Review, a quarterly journal for the submarine community, is published by the Naval Submarine League to further the interests of the submarine service and to inform the public about submarine matters. It is our belief that an active professional dialogue is necessary to ensure public awareness of the continuing need for a strong submarine force and a strong national defense.

As a forum for professional discussion, The Submarine Review provides a vehicle to develop ideas about submarines and the art of submarining. The articles published in the review reflect a broad base of expertise derived from personal experience - the recall of historical precedents; technological insight; public relations today’s world; strategic planning and analysis; conceptual creativity; and innovative thinking
