Overview

UPDATE: THIRD EDITION - WITH EVEN MORE ADDED CONTENT

One of the greatest fears in life that many people share is that of drowning. Others fear being encased in small cramped spaces with no way out. Those that operate submarines face both. These unique machines are a fairly newer wave in combat at sea.

Learn about the origin of the submarine. Where were they created to begin with? You may be surprised to find out about some of the earliest prototypes and how the concept got started. What country began to use them early on and how was the success?

Find out about the pivotal role of the submarine in WWII. The usage and development of battle strategies may have turned the tide of war.

Read about the heroic men that made the tough decisions to go down with the ship in order to maintain the secrets of the United States. The capture and extraction of information could have given the Germans a winning advantage.

Read about Britain's midget sub fleet and how they influenced the modern mini-sub used by today's Special Forces. Find out what the wolfpack is and how that formation created a nearly unstoppable offensive charge against the ships it took on.

While the technology has changed, the courage and bravery that sub crews show with every mission is still the same. Journey through the origins of the original submarine crews and discovery history in a whole new light

Comments From Other Readers

"I've read many books on World WarII and submarine warfare. This is one of the best I've read. The writer puts you in the submarine. Not only is his writing good but his research is extensive and accurate. He weaves a story that shows the compassion and dedication of the silent service. This is a must read for anyone interested in submarine warfare " - Jared (Hawaii, US)

"I read just about any WWII history book I can get my hands on, be it navy, army, air corps or marines. This is one of the best I've read on submarines. The selflessness of this and all brave crews living in cramped, smelly, over heated tin cans is amazing. I doubt I could ever do that. I'm amazed at the sacrifice and courage of these men. The author really puts a face to the battles that happened under the water, securing the seas for the victory of the allied forces. Simply wonderful " - Anna (Minnesota, US)
