Looks at the history of submarines, from the earliest models of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the submarines of both World Wars and today's nuclear submarines.


This lavishly illustrated encyclopedia begins with the primitive boats of the 18th and 19th centuries, covers the submarines of both World Wars and goes on to the nuclear submarines of today. Acclaimed naval artist Tony Gibbons illustrates every major type of submarine. Data tables bring together information from submarine museums across the world, with sidebars on submarine accidents, weapons technology, sensors, oceanography, rescue missions and many other fascinating aspects of war beneath the waves.
