THE REAL BOOK ABOUT SUBMARINES

An addition to the Real Books that meets a definite need, a factual text on modern submarines,- their history, the men who strove to achieve them, their operation today. It's a honey, one of the best in a succession of sound fact books from the inexhaustibly ambitious Epstein couple. There's a lively sense of sound reporting, keen observation, extensive research; there's an appreciation of the kinds of questions that demand answers. There is, too, an awareness of human values, from the groping inventors, to the closely knit, mutually responsible crews. And never is the sense of magic generated by Jules Verne many generations ago lost in the miracle of the modern submarine.
