Description

It seems surprising that anyone could dream of having aircraft-carrying submarines, but from the early days of the First World War, the two have been intrinsically linked. From those first attempts to the Japanese-bombing of the Oregon forests during the Second World War, 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 USA, United Kingdom, 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 over 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.show more
