One of the Brassey "Sea Power" series dealing with naval vessels, weapons systems and technology, this volume focuses on submarines. This in-depth study incorporates an analysis of both nuclear and conventional vessels, written from the perspectives of their commanding officers. The author, himself a former commander of one of Britain's nuclear-powered craft, provides a guide to the state-of-the-art capabilities and technological advances that can be anticipated for the next century. The book is designed to be instructive and of significant value to any young naval officer, and furthermore, is meant as reliable background reading for all those involved with the navy, or providing submarine support facilities. It should also be of interest to naval and ship enthusiasts. The book enables the reader to compare former Soviet and NATO submarine weapon performance and comprehensively covers the recent advances in electronic warfare, navigation systems and sonar.
