Strike from Beneath the Sea: A History of Aircraft-Carrying Submarines Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It seems surprising that anyone could dream of having aircraft-carrying submarines, but from the early days of World War I, the two have been intrinsically linked. From those first attempts to the Japanese-bombing of the Oregon forests during World War II, the history of the many submarines and their aircraft is covered in this comprehensive, illustrated volume. Many different submarine types were either converted or designed to carry aircraft in countries as diverse as the U.S., U.K., Germany, France, Japan, Russia, and Poland. They ranged from the early attempts with floatplanes strapped onto the deck through to the huge Japanese I-Class submarines, which could carry four aircraft in specially designed hangers. Illustrated with more than 230 photographs and drawings of the submarines, their aircraft, and crews, this is the definitive history of the unique and experimental and production craft that have culminated in the nuclear-powered, ICBM-carrying submarines of today.
