  • Gallant Ladyby Don Keith; Ken Henry

    Tom Doherty Associates 2006; US$ 6.79

    She looked like just about like the other diesel powered, Balao-class submarines crafted in the '40s. But there the similarity ends. Because the Archerfish--named for a fish that kills its victims with a lethal blast of water from below--won a unique, heroic place in military history and the memories of her crew members. Here is her story: from... more...

  • Last of the Puffermenby Keith McGinn

    Neil Wilson Publishing 2011; US$ 14.57

    For any fan of the exploits of Para Handy and the motley crew of the Vital Spark, this memoir is not to be missed. Keith McGinn's capers on the puffers off Scotland's West Coast are funnier than Neil Munro's tales at times, but they are also sadder too. The thing is, all of these stories are true. McGinn worked on those puffers, man and boy, for nearly... more...

  • Secret Fleetsby Lynne Cairns

    Western Australian Museum 2013; US$ 12.95

With enemy submarines patrolling off the Western Australian coast, Fremantle became an important international submarine base, the largest in the Southern Hemisphere. During... more...

  • Fighting Texas Navy 1832-1843by Douglas V. Meed

    Taylor Trade Publishing 2001; US$ 17.99

    This is the heroic story of those seaborne Texans who were often outnumbered, usually outgunned, but never outsailed and never, ever outfought. more...

  • A Tale of Two Subsby Jonathan J. McCullough

    Grand Central Publishing 2008; US$ 20.00

    On November 19, 1943, the submarine USS Sculpin , under attack by the Japanese, slid below the waves for the last time in what would become one of the most remarkable stories in U.S. Naval history. Not only did several crewmembers survive the sinking - an extremely rare event in World War II submarine warfare - but several were aboard a Japanese aircraft... more...

  • Poseidonby Steven R. Schwankert

    Hong Kong University Press, HKU 2013; US$ 45.00

    This book is the first of its kind about the discovery and history of a foreign shipwreck in Chinese waters. In 1931, Royal Navy submarine HMS Poseidon sank in collision with a freighter during routine exercises off the Chinese coast. After it had went down, of the twenty-six crewmen who remained inside, eight attempted to surface using an early form... more...

  • Beyond the Blue Horizonby Brian Fagan

  • Shallow Watersby C. R. Benstead

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2011; US$ 5.99

    In this unusual book, Benstead tells how the men of the British Isles have matched their skill and courage against the menace of the surrounding sea. The fishermen, life-boatmen, the smugglers and hovellers, the men of the Royal Navy and the Merchant Service and the pilots of Trinity House - these are the actors in a drama of almost casual heroism.... more...
