The Submarine Review

Thanks to the efforts of USSVI Member and USSVCF Library Chair Ron Martini, the Naval Submarine League (NSL) in Annandale, VA has donated a complete set of their magazine, The Submarine Review to the AIMM/USSVI Library.

Published quarterly since 1983, The Submarine Review is published to further the interests of the submarine service and to inform the public about submarine matters. It is NSL's 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.

We are in the process of cataloging these 88 volumes and we will be posting a complete index of the articles as time permits. A partial Index can be found here.

AIMM would like to take this opportunity to thank both the NSL and Ron Martini for their support of the library.
