AUSTRALIAN SUBMARINES: A HISTORY Volume I and Volume II

£90.00 £25.00

This two-volume set, covers the Australian submarine history from the first Government policy debates in 1910 through the many classes of submarine and the numerous people who served in them up. A work of massive proportion that represents the lifelong research of its author and the support of at least four other primary researchers who have exceptional knowledge of Australian submarine operations. It is an outstanding source book of pertinent information. Some of the operational narratives are exceptional. The work of AE2 in the Dardanelles, although well known, is well worth repeating. The unlucky K9 is an interesting story of endurance despite the obstacles, and the remarkable bravery of the X-Craft men is a story of courage and professionalism.
