Admiral Hyman Rickover: Engineer of Power
Hosted By: National Museum of American Jewish Military History (NMAJMH - Washington, DC)
Marc Wortman joins the National Museum of American Jewish Military History to discuss his new book Admiral Hyman Rickover: Engineer of Power. Known as the “Father of the Nuclear Navy,” Admiral Hyman George Rickover (1899–1986) remains an almost mythical figure in the United States Navy. A brilliant engineer with a ferocious will and combative personality, he oversaw the invention of the world’s first practical nuclear power reactor. As important as the transition from sail to steam, his development of nuclear-propelled submarines and ships transformed naval power and Cold War strategy. They still influence world affairs today.
