In his fascinating new biography, “Admiral Hyman Rickover: Engineer of Power,” historian, journalist and author Marc Wortman explores the enduring legacy of the man who became known as the “Father of the Nuclear Navy,” Admiral Hyman Rickover.

Wortman joins B’nai B’rith CEO Dan Mariaschin to talk about the constant conflict Rickover faced and provoked, how his development of nuclear-propelled submarines and ships transformed naval power and Cold War strategy – and how a Jew born in a Polish shtetl became the longest-serving military officer in U.S. history.
