Publishers Description: Long the subject of popular film and fiction, the world of submarines is a secretive and dangerous one. Bearing testament to this are the hulls of over a century of subs on the ocean floor, lost both in war and in peace. Now, for the first time, the individual stories of these sunken ships are woven together to create an amazing history of underwater warfare and exploration. In gripping text and powerful photographs (including state-of-the-art contemporary underwater images), Lost Submarines chronicles the fates of some of the most famous subs in naval history - from the Australian AE2 to the sinking of the Confederate Armys sub Huntley during the American Civil War to the recent tragic loss of the advanced Russian submarine Kursk. New technology that allows divers and deep-sea submersibles to probe ever deeper into the worlds oceans is giving scientists unprecedented access to these wrecks, shedding new light on the stories behind their creation and destruction.From miraculous escape to tragic loss of life, these are powerful real-life tales filled with mystery, drama and daring from the most perilous environment known to man on earth.
