Summary

Summary

Written by a respected naval historian, this fully illustrated volume tells the dramatic history of the submarine. Starting with the numerous and often catastrophic early efforts to build a working submersible vessel, Submarines describes the developments in submarine technology over the course of the first World War; then moves on to the terrifying days of World War II, when German wolf packs prowled the waters; ending with a discussion of the post-Cold War role of these leviathans of the deep.
