Included are text, tables, illustrations and photographs of:

The first submarines

World War I designs

Inter-war designs and disasters

World War II operations

’Cold War’ submarine design and operations

The latest submarine designs

Submarine accidents through the years, including details on the Russian ‘Kursk’ that sank in 2000.
