The Submarine Review

The Submarine Review is the quarterly publication of the Naval Submarine League. It provides a forum for information and discussion on a variety of submarine-related topics. Not only are the ideas of NSL members to be reflected, but also those of anyone who is interested in submarines and submariners.  The journal is available to corporate and individual members and hard copies are sent to members of Congress, all U.S. Navy submarine activities, and all U.S. submarines.

Transcripts of speakers at NSL events are often included, so the journal is an important resource which reinforces the plans of the active duty Submarine Force leadership and their vision for the way ahead. Membership in the NSL includes a subscription to The Submarine Review, which can be mailed in hard copy or read online.  Recent issues are available only to NSL members.
