From the 16th century mathematician William Bourne to the post-war naval engineer Captain Hyman Rickman, scientists and sailors have worked tirelessly to create an effective way to travel under the sea. This guide documents the successes and failures that embody the progression of the submarine, exploring early attempts to create submersible boats through to the ground-breaking use of nuclear fission and the creation of a whole new type of military technology.

Opening with a history from Alexander the Great to the advent of the Dreadnought, this beautifully illustrated book details the emergence of the submarine as an effective means of transportation and weapon of war in the first half of the twentieth century. This exciting period spans setbacks and developments of the early 1900s, the dash to build during the Great War, the devastation created by the arrival of the U-boat and the explosion in building and modernization that characterized World War II.

The second part of the book focuses on the technological development of over 70 submarines, featured country-by-country. Each section outlines the historical and military context of the submarines evolution and provides an in-depth look into the fascinating scientific innovation and incredible wartime encounters that form the core of submarine history.

With over 400 spectacular illustrations and photographs showing complete models in detail, interior machinery and submarines in action, this book is a valuable source of information about early submarines from all over the world, offering a worthy addition to the collection of any naval history enthusiast.
