Seemingly invisible submarines have exerted enormous influence on naval warfare since the early 1900s. Today, they are a mainstay of world navies large and small, an economically efficient weapon system whose threat no fleet commander can ignore-and whose presence has sparked a continuing evolution in naval defenses and tactics.

About the Author

Paul E. Fontenoy, PhD, is curator of maritime research and technology at the North Carolina Maritime Museum in Beaufort, NC, and a visiting assistant professor in the maritime studies program at East Carolina University, Greenville, NC. His published works include ABC-CLIO's Aircraft Carriers: An Illustrated History of Their Impact.


In Artillery, Kinard (Lafayette of the South: Prince Camille de Polignac and the American Civil War) presents a concise history of artillery weapons, offering detailed descriptions of all technical innovations and developments in the field of military artillery. He covers artillery's impact on the battlefield, from the ancient times of catapults and ballistas to artillery developed during the second half of the 20th century. The last chapters contain specifications for more than 700 field, coastal, heavy, self-propelled, and antiaircraft artillery pieces, from the late 19th to the late 20th century, including date of adoption, caliber, and maximum range. Bottom Line These two very specialized, well-written works are ideal for military history experts and students. Best suited for specialized history collections at special and large academic and public libraries. [Submarines (ISBN 978-1-85109-568-1) and Artillery (ISBN 978-1-85109-561-2) are both available as ebooks.-Ed.]-Luis J. Gonzalez, Hunter Coll.
