Overview
 
David Ross. In 1776, American Patriots attempted to destroy the British flagship Eagle using a man-operated semi-submersible, the Turtle, in New York harbor. The attack failed, but the idea stuck. Almost 90 years later, the CSS Hunley successfully attacked the Federal sloop USS Housatonic by ramming into it with a 59-kilogram (130-pound) spar torpedo. The Housatonic became the first ship in naval history to be sunk by a submarine - and so submarine warfare was born. Each entry includes a brief description of the submarine's development and history, a color profile view or cutaway, key features and specifications. Packed with more than 200 artworks and photographs; 224 pages.
