"This well-illustrated monograph describes the development of the submarine as a warship in the U.S. Navy from its beginnings with USS Holland to the emergence of boats that could wage war in all of the oceans. The author describes the technology that greatly expanded the submarine's capabilities, and then describes the U.S. Navy's little-known submarine operations in World War I, including encounters with German U-boats." --Richard R. Burgess, Seapower (August 2011) ..".an excellent reference and read with a great blend of details and engaging narrative." --Rob Benson, IPMS/USA
