"Submarines" is a sobering yet compelling account of the evolution of the modern fighting submarine, from its debut in 1914 to the 1980s and what could yet turn out to be the eve of World Warr III. Assisted by 200 photographs, maps and charts, Richard Humble traces the development not only of the submarine but also of its weapons, revolutionary new power plants and its strategic role in war and peace, drawing revealing balance sheets of the leading naval powers at significant dates in modern history.
