The World's Greatest Submarines from the 18th Century to the Present

by David Ross
Submarines features the most significant submarines built, from the German U-9—which sank three British cruisers on September 22, 1914—through the huge Japanese I-400 class, to the great nuclear-powered submarines of the Cold War, such as the USS Los Angeles and Soviet Oscar class.

Also included are the “undersea cruiser” Surcouf; the highly successful Type VII U-boats of World War II; and the latest attack and ballistic missile submarines, such as HMS Astute, USS Virginia, the Chinese Type 094, and the Russian Yasen class. Each entry includes a brief description of the submarine's development and history, a color profile or cutaway, key features, and specifications. Packed with more than 200 artworks and photographs, Submarines is an accessible guide for those interested in naval history.

David Ross specializes in maritime, engineering, and railway history and he has written and contributed to numerous books on these subjects. His most recent books are Abandoned Industrial Places, Rail Journeys, Bridges, Coast, Lighthouses, Ships Visual Encyclopedia, The Essential Naval Identification Guide: Submarines 1914–Present, Great Warships, and The World's Greatest Battleships.
