Originally published in 1970 and out of print for nearly thirty years, this book has already earned its place as a classic of submarine history by an author with an international reputation for being second-to-none in evoking the claustrophobic horror of war beneath the waves. Accurate in detail, yet written with humanity and humor, it tells the story of Britain’s pioneer submarines during the 1914-1918 War during which their crews battled courageously in atrocious conditions against a skilled and ruthless enemy and an equally unforgiving sea. 2001 marks the centenary of Britain’s Submarine Service introduced into the Royal Navy in the face of opposition from virtually every flag officer in the fleet. The dedicated enthusiasts who made up their crews were derided as members of ‘The Trade’ but they fought the Edwardian Naval Establishment as fiercely as they were later to fight the enemy; And Victory was their reward on both occasions. Freshly illustrated, this second edition is a timely tribute to the gallant pioneers who created the legacy of dogged courage, determination, and standards of excellence which remain the proud hallmarks of the Royal Navy’s submarine service today.

About the Author:

The son of an engineer specialising in the design and construction of sea defence, Edwyn Gray was born in London's docklands in 1927 at a time when ocean freighters unloaded their exotic cargoes in the heart of the empire's capital. He attributes his love of the sea and ships to those early childhood days. He began writing in 1952 and has contributed to hundreds of magazine articles throughout the world. A Damned Un-English Weapon, was his first book which quickly established his reputation as a submarine historian. He has since written a further fourteen books which have been translated into many languages. He now lives in active retirement in South Norfolk with his wife.
