159 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H). "Until the German U-21 sank the British light cruiser 'Pathfinder' in the early days of the First World War, British submarines had been used only as forward scouts on naval missions. But from that day 'attack' was the watchword of the submariner - and attack they did throughout the two world wars, with such dazzling success that they became one of Britain's most potent tactical weapons. The deeds of many unsung heroes are recorded (in this book), but especially those of the colourful and valiant commanders whose names are etched in history: Commander Max Horton, hero of the Baltic campaign, Lieutenant Commander Martin Nasmith, 'The Terror of the Marmara', Lieutenant Commander Wanklyn, who scored a record number of hits in World War Two before his 'Upholder' was tragically lost with all hands aboard; Lieutenants Donald Cameron and B.C.G. Place, who with incredible courage led the highly dangerous midget submarine attack on the famous German battleship 'Tirpitz'. Here is breath-stopping, action-packed true life adventure as only Graeme Cook can tell it." Light cigarette odour, small pencil erasure mark on front free endpaper, minor browning in margins of pages, very light browning to edges of textblock, minor wrinkling at top of spine. Dust jacket has minor edgewear and very light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, light browning at top edge - a few foxing marks at top edge of flaps.
