The ultimate reference with over 500 color illustrations and photographs…

Although most nations had by the outbreak of WWI deployed submarines, few naval leaders or military theorists imagined the vessels would ever be strategically significant.

But faced with the overwhelming power of Britain's Royal Navy, Imperial Germany turned to the almost invisible Unterseeboot. When a single German U-Boat sank three British cruisers on September 22, 1914, it was clear that naval combat, and, indeed, warfare had changed forever.

Underwater warfare would increasingly become as, and sometimes more, important than the great battles fought on land, and in the nuclear age, the submarine would be the most powerful weapon of war ever created.
Now, Easton Press is proud to present the authoritative illustrated guide – Submarines: World War I to the Present, a magnificent Collector's Edition bound in leather and accented with 22kt gold.

The definitive field guide to the world's submarines.

Comprehensive and authoritative, Submarines: World War I to the Present offers detailed information on the most important military submarines deployed since 1900 and a concise account of the development of mechanized undersea warfare over the last century.

Divided into five chronological sections spanning from WWI to the post-Cold War 21st century and further organized by country and naval campaign, these pages examine 500 legendary and little-known military submarines.

Beginning with Denmark's 1909 Dykkeren and extending to such contemporary super-weapons as China's Type 094 (Jin) class nuclear ballistic missile submarine, each vessel model is presented with a profile-view illustration, brief history, and specifications that include crew size, powerplant, maximum speed and range, dimensions and displacement, and armaments.

Featuring 500 illustrations and 80 historic photographs and both a general index and an index of submarine names, Submarines: World War I to the Present is an unmatched single-volume handbook to a defining modern weapon.
A comprehensive illustrated reference in the finest leather-bound Collector's Edition.

Easton Press has created for this large-format guide to military submarines a Collector's Edition of unsurpassed beauty, the work of expert American craftsmen with an uncompromising commitment to excellence in bookmaking.

The binding is of premium leather, specially selected for this edition. The spine features the traditional raised “hubs” and is embossed with 22kt gold. The acid-neutral paper is designed to reveal every detail of the gorgeous illustrations and preserve these images for generations.

The pages are not merely glued but Smyth-sewn into the binding for superior strength. Moiré end sheets and glowing gilded page ends add beauty and durability. No detail has been overlooked – there’s even a convenient satin-ribbon page-marker.

The Easton Press Collector's Edition Submarines: World War I to the Present is the ultimate at-a-glance guide to the great submarines and an indispensable book (and perfect one-of-a-kind gift) for anyone interested in submarines, naval warfare, or military history.
