    "A Classic WWII Submarine Book !!" Here's a book which was originally classified by the U.S. Government, and when you read it you can see why. It tells you everything you ever wanted to know about the WWII fleet submarines, the ones which beat the pulp out of the Japanese. It's a veritable encyclopedia of information about submarine systems, and includes an absolute TON of illustrations and photos. Major chapters are: Development of the Submarine, Definitions and Phraseology, Compartmentation, Tank Arrangements, Buoyancy and Stability, Engineering Plant, Ventilation System, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning System, Water System, Trim and Drain Systems, Air Systems, Main Hydraulic System, Steering System, Bow and Stern Planes System, Ancho Handling Gear and Capstans, Fuel and Lubricating Oil Systems, General Surface Operations, General Diving Operations, Compensation, Patrol Routine, and Submarine Training Devices. Wow, that's a lot of stuff! This book cleared up a great... More > many "mysteries" I've encountered reading submarine fiction from "Run Silent, Run Deep" to "The Hunt for Red October." If you're a submarine fan and you don't have this on your bookshelf, well you should.< Less
