Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. An elektroboot ("electric boat" in German) was the first submarine designed to operate entirely submerged, rather than as submersibles that could submerge as a temporary means to escape detection or launch an attack.Even before the second world war the rocket designer Hellmuth Walter had been advocating the use of hydrogen peroxide (known as perhydrol) as a fuel. His engines were to become famous for their use in rocket-powered aircraft-notably the Me 163 Komet-but most of his early efforts were spent on systems for submarine propulsion.show more
