Synopsis

The First Submarines The Beginnings of Underwater Warfare by Richard Compton-Hall

This witty and perceptive account of the early years of submarine development contains much new material and the lives of the forgotten pioneers of submarines. It includes many wonderful inventions and even more colourful inventors, but focuses primarily on John Philip Holland, the Irish-American genius who took submarine development out of the hands of lunatics and visionaries and turned it into a deadly weapon of war.

Kerry Bridges

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

You'll always find what you never knew you were looking for and you're always spoilt for choice.

Helen Jones

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
