An attack submarine or hunter-killer submarine is a submarine specifically designed for the purpose of attacking and sinking other submarines, surface combatants and merchant vessels. In the Soviet and Russian navies they were and are called "multi-purpose submarines". They are also used to protect friendly surface combatants and missile submarines.

A concise, readable and fully-illustrated account of how the modern submarine fleets came to be, from the very first underwater vessel that crossed the Thames in 1620, to the ultra-computerized nuclear submarine that functions as the strategic linchpin for most of today's advanced navies.

I borrowed a copy of this from my friend. It was a great read (if you are interested in submarines). Ranges from the history of submarines to what it is like to live on one.

Left the copy on the roof of my car. Retrieved book, but it was in "freeway" shape. So purchased this to replace. Even though both my friend and I had already finished the book, she wanted a copy to go back to.

Normally I research an author's background before buying a book on a technical subject such as submarines, but in this case since I was waiting for a plane and was desperate for something to read, I got this book. It initially appealed to me since it was profusely illustrated and even included mention of the "Kursk" incident, but when I saw the rather wide (almost double-) spacing between the lines, I was a little suspicious.

Admittedly, I've only read through the first dozen or so pages so far, but this one error I found really bothers me (especially for a "revised and updated" edition). The world's first nuclear-powered submarine, the USS Nautilus (SSN 571), was launched in 1954 (January 21st, to be exact), not 1962 as the book states.

In skimming the rest of the book, I came across a photograph of Adm. Hyman Rickover on page 115 "on the deck of a submarine headed out to sea." The submarine's number is clearly visible on the conning tower: 571. It's obviously the Nautilus; why the author would not identify this historic vessel as such or even by name instead of just labeling it as "a submarine" is beyond me. As I finish the rest of the book, I know I'm going to be uncomfortable with any more of this author's assertions.

I think any submarine enthusiast getting this book should use it as an exercise in checking for errors; anyone wanting to learn about submarines should go to a more credible source such as "Submarine Design and Development" by Norman Friedman of the U. S. Naval Institute, books by Norman Polmar also of USNI, or any edition of "Jane's Fighting Ships."

Now in a substantially revised and updated edition, Chuck Lawliss' The Submarine Book provides the reader with a superbly researched, written, and up to date history of the attack submarine. From the first underwater vessel to cross the Thames River in 1620 to the multi-billion-dollar modern submarines, this unique class of vessels has had a compelling and fascinating history. Lawliss also covers the contemporary problems creating by submarines, such as the 120 decommissioned Russian subs off the coast of Murmansk. If they sink, nuclear waste will ruin the environment. Highly recommended reading for military buffs, The Submarine Book offers a detailed portrait of life aboard today's subs in a concise, readable, and fully-illustrated account.
