Críticas:

"This delightful little book is one of the publisher's New Vanguard series... It manages to pack into a mere 48 pages an incredible amount of detail and infromation written in an easy style that does not descend to over-simplification... All in all, this is quite a remarkable book, both as a good historical summary of an often-overlooked aspect of the war and also as an important technical reference." --Michael Young, The Northern Mariner / Le Marin Du Nord "This book covers the various classes of submarine used by the Royal Navy as well as a considerable amount of detail in their usage during WWI. We are blessed with a superb variety of period photographs of these ships and this is further enhanced by the excellent illustrations and cutaways of artist Tony Bryan." --Scott Van Aken, Modelingmadness.com (June 2008) "As the major engaged in an arms race in the early years of the 20th century, the Admiralty was tasked with developing the sbumarine. Covering all classes of submarine developed and deployed during the war, this book includes extensive technical detail and fascinating accounts of daring submarine raids in the Baltic and the Dardanelles." --Game Trade Magazine (April 2008)

Reseña del editor:

As the major powers engaged in an arms race in the early years of the 20th century, the Admiralty was tasked with developing that deadly stalker of the high seas the submarine. In 1905, briefed with creating a vessel that could be employed on an enemy's coastline, the Admiralty took several technological leaps forward to match Germany's own revolutionary vessels. Written by an influential expert in the field and covering all classes of submarine developed and deployed during the war, this book includes great technical detail, gripping operational accounts and is accompanied by artwork. With fascinating details of daring submarine raids in the Baltic and the Dardanelles, this book reveals the exceedingly dangerous world of early submarine warfare which claimed an extraordinary number of lives on both sides and paved the way for a new kind of naval warfare in the 20th century and beyond.

Buchbeschreibung Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Zustand: New. Tony Bryan (illustrator). Language: English. Brand new Book. As the major powers engaged in an arms race in the early years of the 20th century, the Admiralty was tasked with developing that deadly stalker of the high seas - the submarine. In 1905, briefed with creating a vessel that could be employed on an enemy's coastline, the Admiralty took several technological leaps forward to match the German revolutionary vessels. Several classes were launched but the most successful was the E-Class, which were built in 1914 and would prove to be the supreme British submarines of the war. In operations it was the most successful British submarine class in actions against enemy warships, which included the destruction of one battleship, three cruisers and five U-boats. Three E-Class commanders were to win the Victoria Cross - Britain's highest award for gallantry.Submarine operations were particularly successful in the Baltics. Here the British fleet could not operate safely - the waters were dangerous, heavily mined and there were no bases. However, for British submarines operating out of Russia this was a happy hunting ground.Although only a total of six were permanently stationed here, they did a disproportionately high amount of damage to the enemy than their more numerous counterparts in the North Sea. Ironically, another area of remarkable success was the Dardanelles which is generally associated with a colossal Allied loss. Despite the difficult conditions of enemy minefields, torpedoes and searchlights; British submarines valiantly attacked and harassed the Turkish supply effort.Another type of submarine - the K-Class - was developed purely for operations against Germany's rival U-boats. Playing a dangerous game of 'hunt the hunter', K-Class submarines were deployed in known U-boat transit routes, in their patrol areas and outside their bases. A total of thirteen U-boats were subsequently sunk in a year. Famously two British submarines succeeded in stalking and sinking two German U-boats within the English Channel proving the vital contribution submarines made to the Home Fleet. Discover the exceedingly dangerous world of early submarine warfare as the Admiralty, under intense pressure, developed a number of submarine classes to attack and harass rival navies both in home waters and abroad.
