    Francis Duncan, a retired historian at the Department of Energy who lives in Bethesda, Maryland is coauthor of “Nuclear Navy, ”, and the . One of the reference materials I have relied heavily on in the past few years was called “Nuclear Navy ” written by Richard G. Hewlett and Francis Duncan. This book was an attempt to capture early history of the Navy’s nuclear power program and has a lot of detail that has been obscured from history.

    The BWR arose from GE’s efforts to generate a commercial nuclear power plant, and rise above its second place finish to Westinghouse in the Navy nuclear propulsion program. The fact that the three major accidents each used a different reactor design suggests that the risks of nuclear power generation are not limited to a single technology.   Discover the fascinating stories and history of the U.S. Navy nuclear program. With five official histories and reports, this unique compilation provides a stunning, richly detailed overview of all aspects of this amazing story.

      Washington, D.C., J - U.S. atomic tests in Bikini Atoll in July staged by a joint Army-Navy task force were the first atomic explosions since the bombings of Japan a year earlier. Documents posted today by the National Security Archive about “Operation Crossroads” shed light on these events as do galleries of declassified videos and photographs. NUCLEAR NAVY, By Richard G. Hewlett and Francis Duncan. Chicago: University of Chicago Press, , pp. $ Two superb historians, who produced an official history of the Atomic Energy Commission, have written an equally successful history of the development of nuclear power for naval propulsion of submarines and ships.
