The Submarine Book – An Illustrated History Of The Attack Submarine


This is a highly readable overview of the development of the submarine from early experiments such as Correlius Van Drebbel’s oar powered submarine of 1620 and David Bushnell’s Turtle of 1776 which carried out the first submarine war mission in history through to the adoption of the submarine by the navies of the world at the turn of the 20th Century. From there Lawliss follows the use of submarines in two World Wars and the evolution of the nuclear powered submarines of today
