Commander Robert Forsyth RN (Ret d) commanded a diesel-powered submarine HMS Alliance, was Executive Officer (2nd-in-command) of the Polaris submarine HMS Repulse (temporarily in command), Teacher to the submarine CO’s Command Course, Perisher, and commanded a nuclear-powered attack submarine HMS Sceptre. He has journeyed from the depths of the Cold War and acceptance of nuclear deterrence to a rejection of that concept and opposition to renewal of the Trident nuclear weapons system. This book details Commander Forsyth s journey, reveals the findings of his research, and stands as a testament to what can be unleashed when the habit of conformity is eroded and a determined search for answers is embarked upon.
