5.0 out of 5 stars Hot, Straight and Normal 15 Feb 2002
By Gilbert J. Raynor - Published on Amazon.com
As a former Submariner and as an avid reader, I am impressed with the scope of this reissued work. The Bibliography proper will assist any researcher who delves into information regarding Submarines, US Navy Submarines and their development and use. The video listing is the most exhaustive I have ever seen.
The addition of various appendixes greatly expands the usefulness and depth of the work. Mr. Martini has provided historical sources and references that will save the researcher much time in his hunt for information. The listing of the Submarine Museums is especially important for those who read Submarine books and want to visit an historical vessel; however it is also important to those who will come along and write submarine books who have no idea of the difference of WWII Submarines and modern Nuclear submarines. The addition of information on deck logs and how and where that information may be obtained is of critical importance to one who wishes to obtain the most detailed information available of what happened in the past.
This book is a must have for any serious Submarine reader, researcher or dillitante just beginning his appreciation of Submarines.
