Naval Frogmen: Wartime Underwater Operators Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

World War 2 divers enjoyed the new techniques of aqualungs, and the first were underwater oxygen rebreathers made in 1933 by an Italian company. Consequently the first well-known frogmen were the Italian navy commando frogmen. As the war developed all nations used frogmen for a variety of roles including placing limpet mines and the cutting of torpedo and submarine netting.

Synopsis:

The word ‘Frogman arose around 1940 from the appearance of a diver in shiny drysuit and large fins.
