Between 15 June 1968 and 13 May 1996, the Polaris Submarines of the Tenth Squadron carried out a total of 229 Polaris Patrols, involving the submarines steaming in excess of 2 million miles.
Apart from delivering the submarines, the bases and the men to man them, the project worked well over its designed life span.
It was delivered on time and on budget essentially by a small group of Naval Officers and civil servants, and makes an impressive tale wherever you sit on the nuclear debate.
Here submarine historian Keith Hall presents the whole Polaris story, looking in detail at the history of the journey to Polaris on the global stage, as well as the people who made it happen and their working environments and routines.
