A highly readable account covering the technology, politics, personalities and events which shaped the Royal Navy submarine service.
The personal testimony of numerous submariners brings home the bravery of the men who put to sea in these craft, and the tragedy that befell so many, particularly in the first half of the 20th century.
The technological progress from Britain's first Holland type submarines of 1901 (20m long, 120 tonnes) to the latest high-tech Trident vessels (150m long, 16,000 tonnes) is fascinating in itself.
This book has something to offer anyone interested in WW1, WW2, cold war or naval history.

excellent history of the british submarine service, particularly of the first part of the 20th century, concludes in 2000, could do with an update but obviously interest may be limited in this field. Would recommend to someone looking for good overview of origins of the silent service, i certainly enjoyed it.

Good book. A whistle-stop history of the service from its inception to the C21st, and a tad subjective, but overall an interesting read. Lots on WW2, which isn't surprising.

This is an area of British naval history that is often ignored due to the U-boat being such a hated vessel in the second world war. Somehow people do not the like to think that we used these powerful ships as well.

This is a great book. Well written that gives you a great overview of the submarine service.
