Descripción

Wilmslow, Crecy Publishing 1997, first UK edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 7 1/2 x 9 1/2, FINE/FINE CONDITION, 219 pages, many illustrations & maps, appendices, bibliog., index.------------------------------------- The mention of submarine warfare during the Great War, or the First World War as it is now more generally known, will, no doubt, conjure up thoughts of the German U-boat offensive against allied shipping in the Atlantic. To the majority of British submariners it meant many hours and days spent in the Heligoland Bight with too few targets, the danger of mines and the terrible weather found, all too often, in that part of the ocean.--------------------------------------------------- Yet the Mediterranean Sea provides great interest as it was the only theatre of submarine operations where six of the eight major navies of the world had constant action with and against each other. With only Japan and the United States absent the allied navies of Britain, France, Italy and Russia fought continually against the German and Austrian navies to keep shipping routes open.Three German submarine commanders with the highest total of tonnage sunk, in World War One, operated in the Mediterranean and four British commanders received the award of the Victoria Cross for their endeavours in this theatre of operations.

Sinopsis:

Although much has been written about submarine action in World War II, practically nothing is known of the early submarines and their crews during World War I. Because of the limitations of these early vessels, submarine activity was largely confined to the Mediterranean sea. The authors have produced an extremely details record of early submarine action, compiled from official sources and encompassing the countries involved in the conflict. Their account is supported by a wealth of photographs never before published.
