Descripción

The first submarines to be commnissioned by the British Admiralty were five «Holland» class boats in 1900. Arriving in 1901, they heralded a new age of naval warfare. However, due to naval rivalries and hierarchies and an institutional misinterpretation of submarines tactics and strategy, the British submarine service took a long time to grow. This knowledgeable and passionate account of submarine history is complemented by nearly 200 illustration.
