A fascinating collection of photographs from the archives of the Royal Navy Submarine Museum, the Imperial War Museum, the Storico Navale in Venice, and private collections gives a graphic view of life in British submarines. The story follows the submarine's vital role over the past 100 years—submarines that range from the tiny Holland class, designed in Queen Victoria's reign, to the monstrous Vanguard class of the nuclear age. Their exploits from the North Cape to the Falklands, from the Mediterranean to the Pacific, are legendary. The story is brought up to date with the Royal Navy's new Trident class of nuclear submarines of the 1990s.
Illustrated with archival photographs and accompanied by detailed captions, this book will appeal to all with an interest in the Royal Navy and its enduring association with the submarine.
