Submarines opens with the first military submarine, Turtle, deployed during the American Revolutionary War, and shows how submarines became part of war strategy for the first time in World War I, with the German U-boat campaign, and their huge role in World War II. Cutaway artworks display the heart of a U-boat and modern hunter-killer, with lots of detail on nuclear-powered submarines, their technology, propulsion, controls and defence systems (torpedoes and missiles).--Publisher's description.
