It is both an antholo gy for the general reader to dip into and a companion to historical studies. Gay and grumbling, high-flown and understated, dramatic and humdrum, comic and tragic, these pieces illustrate the British temper in war - a business unpremeditate d a n d o f ten bungled at the beginning, conducted prodigally and doggedly but without neurosis, and then finished and done with. They start with the brilliant switch from the Meuse to the Danube which confounded the Europe of 1704 and end with Ko r ea w he r e ag ain the world has seen the characteristic stubborness without display of ruthlessness or heroics..."

MIDGET SUBMARINES OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR., Kemp, Paul.
3 Kemp, Paul. MIDGET SUBMARINES OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR.
London Caxton 2003 1840675217 / 9781840675214 Reprint Hard Cover Fine Fine David J Hill, plans and drawings. 
125 pp, 4to (11 9/16" H). B&w photographs, drawings, diagrams - folded plans in pocket at rear. "The history of midget submarines, submersibles and human torpedoes is one of the most fascinating areas of naval warfare in the Second World War. Originating with the Italian 'Mignatta' human torpedo of the First World War, designed to attack enemy ships lying in defended harbours, by 1945 almost all the major combatants had made some use of craft of th is type, ranging from the British 'X-Craft', which crippled the German battleship 'Tirpitz' in a Norwegian fjord and sank the Japanese cruiser 'Takao', to the Japanese 'Kaiten' suicide weapon, the equally desperate German submersibles the 'Neger' and 'Marder', and the slightly more successful 'Seehund' midget submarine. This book deals with each type of craft separately, dividing them into human torpedoes (Italian 'Maiale', British 'Chariot'), submersibles (German 'Biber' and Japanese 'Kaiten'), and true midget submarines (British 'X-Craft' and Japanese 'Ko-Hyoteki'). The author examines the reasons why the belligerents engaged in midget submarine construction and operations, and details all the classes of craft that were built, also examining postwar developments. Together with its superb plans and drawings, this book is essential reference for all naval historians, enthusiasts and modelmakers with an interest in one of the most daring and dangerous forms of naval warfare."
