One of the great untold stories of the British services is that of the Royal Navy Submarine Service, which entered the fray of World War I with 100 underwater craft. Through World War II, where submariners' prospects of returning safely from a mission were only 50:50, the Falklands conflict, and the sinking of the Belgrano, to modern-day elite machines, the Silent Service has played an enormous part in British defense. The author's in-depth investigation is very much personality-led, with diaries from the early part of the century and substantial first-person testimony from survivors of wartime heroics. 294pp with 3 photo sections amidships, 750g carded packed for post.
