Description

More than anyone else, Admiral H. G. Rickover made nuclear power a reality. He created the nuclear Navy almost overnight, he also built the world's first commercial atomic power station and laid the groundwork for the world-wide nuclear power industry. Yet it took Congress to force the Navy to reverse his forced retirement.

    An interesting take on the man who changed not only the Navy, but industry as well
