Dive into the world of World War 2 Submarines



One of the greatest fears in life that many people share is that of drowning. Others fear being encased in small cramped spaces with no way out. Those that operate submarines face both. These unique machines are a fairly newer wave in combat at sea.

Learn about the origin of the submarine. Where were they created to begin with? You may be surprised to find out about some of the earliest prototypes and how the concept got started. What country began to use them early on and how was the success?

While the technology has changed, the courage and bravery that sub crews show with every mission is still the same. Journey through the origins of the original submarine crews and discovery history in a whole new light!

Comments From Other Readers

“I've read many books on World WarII and submarine warfare. This is one of the best I've read. The writer puts you in the submarine. Not only is his writing good but his research is extensive and accurate. He weaves a story that shows the compassion and dedication of the silent service. This is a must read for anyone interested in submarine warfare!” – Jared (Hawaii, US)

“I read just about any WWII history book I can get my hands on, be it navy, army, air corps or marines. This is one of the best I've read on submarines. The selflessness of this and all brave crews living in cramped, smelly, over heated tin cans is amazing. I doubt I could ever do that. I’m amazed at the sacrifice and courage of these men. The author really puts a face to the battles that happened under the water, securing the seas for the victory of the allied forces. Simply wonderful!” – Anna (Minnesota, US)

This may be one of the worst written books I have ever read. A potentially interesting collection of stories about Submarine warfare was spoiled by poor writing and non-existing editing. There were so many errors in tense, grammar, sentence structure that I found myself mentally re-writing the book in order to make more sense of it. The inconsistency of the writing made me wonder if it was collection of stories by several different authors, all of whom had resorted to spell and grammar checkers instead of reading and editing the text. It is a fair first draft but certainly not a finished book.

In the race to publish, the English language has become neglected to the point where much of the joy of reading is gone. If you appreciate good writing do yourself a favor and take a pass this one.

HASH(0xa5ba4c78) out of 5 stars Introduction to submarine warfare Jan. 28 2015
By Charles van Buren - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is an introductory work to submarine warfare through WW2. The author discusses the origin of the submarine & early attempts to use them in combat. Concentrating on German, American, & British submarines, there is no discussion of the submarines of other nations involved in WW2 other than the Japanese midgets at Pearl Harbor. Information on the Italian midget subs would have been interesting. However, as an introduction to the subject of submarine warfare, the book accomplishes its purpose. Even though it is a summary, I learned several things about WW2.

HASH(0xa64e2114) out of 5 stars There are a few photos and diagrams of the first submarine which gives an excellent illustration of what it looked like Feb. 5 2015
By Jerry M - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Ryan Jenkins has certainly earned the title of being the authority on all things world war 2. If you continue to collect his work, you will be sure to have quite an impressive world war 2 archives. The book opens with an introduction to the rudimentary submarines of the past and my how far we have come. The facts revealed were quite intriguing especially when considering how they were first powered. There are a few photos and diagrams of the first submarine which gives an excellent illustration of what it looked like. There is even a small section which explains how submarines work, which is quite apt to be included in a book like this.The book then delves into how submarines factored into World War 1 and later World War 2, looking at the challenges and successes at the time. Real accounts of individuals who were aboard some these submarines are also included and it really gives a personal feel to the book rather than it just being a cold factual recounting of the events.

This is definitely an awesome book to read as it really shows how submarines affected the outcome of these wars which have impacted mankind's history so greatly. The account is very easy to follow and really pulls you in. Even though it is a short book, the details it supplies are amazing. Certainly a great read.

HASH(0xa646308c) out of 5 stars While learning machinery and such isn't really my favorite, this book makes it really easy to understand Feb. 4 2015
By Ashleigh Nolen - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Learning about the oceans have always been interesting to me, so learning about the machinery used and how it's been used in the past is all a part of it. While learning machinery and such isn't really my favorite, this book makes it really easy to understand. The book keeps it simple and interesting, so no matter who's reading it, it's great for the basics and for those who have a hard time keeping focused on the subject. The book starts from square one about how submarines were created and used, so you're definitely getting everything about the history.

HASH(0xa6450a44) out of 5 stars Good introduction to WWII submarines; poor editing Sept. 5 2015
By Eva Bellinger - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The author's intended audience is people who know nothing about submarines, and want to learn. He does a good job describing the workings of a sub in simple terms. He chooses two particularly dramatic stories involving US Fleet Boats. He also describes the British X-craft raid against the TIRPITZ.
The Battle of the Atlantic section could profit from telling a few more stories in detail. For example, he could give a more detailed narrative of Gunther Prien's attack at Scapa Flow; or discuss the raids off the US coasts while resort cities refused to turn their lights off.
I rated this with only three stars because the editing is sloppy. The book contains one major factual goof. Fleet subs carried 24 torpedoes and had ten tubes; the book says that Fleet boats carried ten torpedoes. Many sentences are so poorly punctuated that they are hard to follow; and a long commendation is repeated in full.

HASH(0xa5e1b2dc) out of 5 stars Excellent Read! July 5 2015
By AJohn1776 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Other than the few grammatical errors, as some sentences threw me off, and appeared choppy, this is a great title just as Jenkins's other books. I've always found myself incredibly fascinated with submarines, and how they operate. Jenkins here writes a well-thought out, well-researched book about the operations and history of the submarine. There's a diagram with a man inside an early 1776 submarine that's called the "Turtle," that was created by Roger Bushnell. I never knew submarines were that ancient until now, so as you can see, someone as myself who believes they know a lot of history can still learn something new. I highly recommend this book to others who want to learn more about submarines. Great job, Ryan!
