A good, though pendantic, look at a boomer submarine.
29 November 2001 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

Though this Time-Life video is about various modern subs, it takes you into a voyage of an American nuclear missile submarine, a "boomer." Watching the for-the-camera action onboard is not nearly as exciting as watching a similar exercise on "Red October" or "Crimson Tide." But that's because there is no real firing and no real stress. Good piece overall.
