Continuing the high quality of the Jane’s military book series, Jane’s Submarines is a lavishly illustrated account of the war beneath the waves. Rare photographs, technical specifications and engaging historical story-telling make this an essential read for anyone interested in naval combat. The highly respected journalist and author, Robert Hutchinson, follows the development of the submarine as a weapon of war from its earliest designs in the 16th Century to the last vessels at sea today.

Included are text, tables, illustrations and photographs of:

  • The first submarines

  • World War I designs

  • Inter-war designs and disasters

  • World War II operations

  • ’Cold War’ submarine design and operations

  • The latest submarine designs

  • Submarine accidents through the years, including details on the Russian ‘Kursk’ that sank in 2000.

Acclaimed naval artist Tony Gibbons has provided illustrations for many of the major ‘landmarks’ for designs from 1776 through to the present day.
