Back jacket blurb

The dream of combining aircraft and submarines occurred surprisingly early in the development of both. Following British and German experiments in 1914-1918, many navies built special submersible aircraft carriers between the wars, but only the Japanese persevered with the apparently insurmountable problems, culminating in a planned 1945 raid on the Panama Canal.

In this essentially pictorial book, all these pioneering efforts are well documented, with many extremely rare photographs of the boats and their purpose-built aircraft. However, much of the story relates to the post-1945 period, when the USA carried out many fascinating but little known developments in submarine aviation, including plans for a submarine-launched jet fighter.

Recently, there has been a revival of interest in this concept, and the book concludes with a look at the possible employment of vertical take-off aircraft aboard submarines, and in particular the application of the revolutionary Skyhook launching / recovery systern.

The History of the British ' U ' CLASS Submarine by Derek Walters: Originally designed in 1934 as a small simple submarine for anti-submarine training, the 'U' Class submarine's career turned out to be far more dramatic and valuable than that. On the onset of the War it was first adapted for patrolling home waters but, by the close of hostilities six years later, boats of the Class had served world-wide with seven different navies. Its contribution was never more successful than in the dangerous waters of the Mediterranean, where their operations were a major factor in the defeat of Rommel's Afrika Corps.

Beginning with the chase of the Altrnark, a German prison ship. Fatal Ascent gives the entire story of HMS Seal's World War II activities. During a mine-laying expedition in May 1940, the big submarine became trapped on the floor of the Kattegat, with little hope of escape. Three Seal veterans describe the terror of their experience and their desperate attempts to avoid surrendering to the Germans, who awaited them on the surface. Forced to raise the white flag, Commander Rupert Lonsdale and his men left their boat and were transported to German POW camps, where they remained for the next five years. J. J. Tall and Paul Kemp's 'HM Submarines in Camera' gives a graphic view of life in British submarines which have been an integral part of the Royal Navy for the past 100 years — submarines that range from the tiny 'Holland' class designed in Queen Victoria's reign, to the monstrous `Vanguard' class of the nuclear age.   Click for more on Richard Compton-Hall's " Submarine Boats ".
