Cold War Submarines: The Design and Construction of U.S. and Soviet Submarines
Submarines had a vital, if often unheralded, role in the superpower navies during the Cold War. Their crews carried out intelligence-collection operations, sought out and stood ready to destroy opposing submarines, and, from the early 1960s, threatened missile attacks on their adversary s homeland, providing in many respects the most survivable nuclear deterrent of the Cold War. For both East and West, the modern submarine originated in German U-boat designs obtained at the end of World War II. Although enjoying a similar technology base, by the 1990s the superpowers had created submarine fleets of radically different designs and capabilities. Written in collaboration with the former Soviet submarine design bureaus, Norman Polmar and K. J. Moore authoritatively demonstrate in this landmark study how differing submarine missions, antisubmarine priorities, levels of technical competence, and approaches to submarine design organizations and management caused the divergence.

Doing a Cold War Paper about Submarine Warfare and this book was great.
A very comprehensive view of the development of the submarine during the cold war. Starting from the German U-boats from WWII, this book describes the development of submarines through the cold war, including their weapons systems, with close attention to detail. Included are a lot of submarine projects never realised, but still important to later designs. All designs are illustrated in detail, most in both drawing and photo.
This book is a must to everybody more than just casually interested in submarines.
