HARWICH SUBMARINES IN THE GREAT WAR: The First Submarine Campaign of the Royal Navy in 1914
The Harwich Submarine Flotilla played a key role establishing British dominance in the North Sea at the beginning of WWI. The 1914 campaign saw the first torpedo fired in action by a Royal Navy submarine, the first ship to be sunk, and the first submarine to be lost in action. Offers insight into what it was like to fight in these early submarines, while also relating what really happened and the true significance of the events. The Flotilla had to battle not just the enemy, but also the hazards of mines, human frailties, mechanical failure and the weather.
Uses letters, diaries, memoirs, and combat reports of the participants to give a complete account, all sourced from public and private British, German, and French archives. Includes 37 b/w photos, 49 charts, and 1 graph.
