9780917561214: Submarine warfare: Today and tomorrow
From Publishers Weekly:

The authorsvintage British submarinersinsist that there's no area of geostrategic decision-making in which it is more vitally urgent "to determine the facts and discard the abundant fictions" than in underwater warfare. Such is their aim in this wide-ranging and authoritative study, which takes a close look at underwater weaponry and defenses, their present and potential capabilities, and their probable employment in time of war. Moore and Compton-Hall clarify the comparative vulnerability of the land and sea components of the U.S. nuclear triad, as opposed to the U.S. submarine fleet, which they point out is by far "the most dependable and convincing leg" of that triad. Further, they consider "unassailable" arguments in favor of the U.S. Navy's role as a force maintaining the nuclear balance for the entire free world. Nonspecialist readers will discover in these pages a rich mixture of submarine history, a survey of sub fleets around the world and a thorough explication of the central place of submarines in geopolitical strategy.

From Library Journal:

This is a welcome and needed survey of the history and probable future of submarine warfare by two British naval officers. They contend that underwater warfare is generally misunderstood by decision-makers and the public and that few comprehend how crucial submarines are for defense in both the Western and Soviet arsenals. Their goal is to set out the facts and to destroy the many fictions. They give information on all types of submarines and on all nations that maintain submarine forces. The authors largely succeed in clarifying the role of submarines. Their well-organized and well-written work will appeal to readers with an interest in naval affairs, and librarians will find it a useful reference for its history and descriptions. For academic and public libraries. Edward Gibson, Union Coll. Lib., Barbourville, Ky .
