Federal History: Naval Weapons Technology
The Sound of Freedom: Naval Weapons Technology at Dahlgren, Virginia, 1918-2006 (2006)
For all its scholarly integrity, this rigorously researched and documented organizational history tells a no less compelling story: the evolution of a U.S. Navy gun testing facility into a modern research and development center. Drawing on an ambitious oral history project and broad knowledge of government and military history, the book situates nearly a century of growth within the context of world events and the constantly shifting defense research, development, test, and evaluation organization and policy. Hardcover, 7” x 10”, 434 black-and-white pages with photos, illustrations, and appendices.
