The highly respected journalist and author, Robert Hutchinson, follows the development of the submarine as a weapon of war from its earliest designs in the 16th. Both of the World War submarines fleets are examined, but not in great detail, as this is a relatively thin book. The Cold War also has a lot of coverage in other books, and the treatment here was somewhat thin. No Victors or Novembers for the Soviet Union, for example. Overall a good book for an introduction. Most every page has a spelling or grammatical mistake.

This covers the early history of submarines, Bushnell's Turtle through Holland's efforts for the U.S. Navy through the early pre-World War 1 submarines, especially well. Both of the World War submarines fleets are examined, but not in great detail, as this is a relatively thin book. The Cold War also has a lot of coverage in other books, and the treatment here was somewhat thin. No Victors or Novembers for the Soviet Union, for example.

Overall a good book for an introduction. I've deducted a star for the horrid editing and fact checking. Most every page has a spelling or grammatical mistake. Some dates are obviously wrong, transposed digits, but what other mistakes might be hiding in here?

The Jane's series are collectibles
For $7 this is a steal for the MIL Enthusiast or Game Developer.

Good picture book but sloppily written. Many typos and errors that make me doubt the credibility of other information in the book. For example, it says that the reason behind the Kursk disaster was unknown, even though at the date of publishing the cause had been made public for quite a while. Some of the picture are just lazy as well, but most are nice, the only reason it doesn't have 1 star.

An attractively illustrated book, this is not however really something you can read cover to cover: it's more in the style of an encyclopedia article. Nor is it really a complete reference work, since a number of intermediate classes are simply omitted, e.g., Gato class subs are fully covered, but the Balao and Tench classes are unmentioned.

Quite good enough for a dabbler like me, but this will not satisfy someone looking for the kind of comprehensive treatment one associates with Jane's.

I haven't read the book yet, but my 4 year old grandson enjoyed going through it, which is why I bought it. He has been mesmerized by the submarine model that I have of the USS PARCHE, and I thought this would be a good book for him to go through, since it would have pictures of various submarine types.

Severely outdated. Latest tech covered is from the 1990s. Don't waste you money. Picture quality is good - for 1970s spy shots. Otherwise it's terrible

Missing information on older boats, some aren't even listed. Very complete on newer subs, 1980 or newer, but dropping off older boats if they were in a class of their own.
