It is almost exactly one hundred years since the world's navies commissioned their first primitive submarines and so gave birth to a new elite, the men whose job it was to serve, fight, and often die, unseen, beneath the waves.
In this book Philip Kaplan traces the history of the submarine, beginning with the ingenious but impractical proposals of the seventeenth-century European inventors who first dreamed of devising 'an engine to blow up ships'.
