While many submarine commanders have documented their experiences, they usually focus on their adventures instead of the technical aspects of their vessels.
W.F. Danielson, P.E., clears the cobwebs that surround how submarines work in this technically-oriented book for engineers, scientists, and anyone eager to understand how these majestic vessels operate.
After establishing some diesel submarine basics and equipment fundamentals, the book positions you as a crew member on watch. Depending on the situation, youÕll take her up from the deep, drop off an underwater demolition team or coax another half-knot from a surfaced boat already delivering flank speed.
Not everything always goes smoothly: YouÕll learn how to survive a fierce depth charge attack and hobble back home, how to break a nose-first freefall caused by jammed bow planes.
If youÕve ever wondered about the technical aspects of maneuvering a submarine, then youÕll treasure the detailed information in Plant Operation Aboard a WWII Submarine.
