OSHR 3189 - Dive, Dive, Dive - Fantastic Voyages in Submarines (Perk Series Lecture)

  • Noncredit

Submarines are an integral part of modern military and geopolitical strategy in both peace and war. From the time World War II diesel-electric submarines began to make a major strategic impact on shipping and warships in both oceans, to modern nuclear vessels undertaking everything from covert spy missions to ballistic missile patrols as part of the Nuclear Triad, submarines continue to go where others fear to tread. The submarines’ versatility, stealth, and sheer deadliness make them the stuff of romance, military novels, documentaries, Osher Perks, and war stories for most anyone.

This talk is jointly sponsored by the CSU Society of Senior Scholars and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute.

Noncredit courses do not produce academic credit nor appear on a Colorado State University academic transcript.
