KIRKUS REVIEW

By the author of the excellent Birds and Planes: How They Fly, this ""fullface"" of the Nautilus is written with an esprit that makes its information bubble with the vim of fresh sparkling water. What's in it, covers the sub itself quite thoroughly: its incorporation of all new developments since WWI, the operation of the nuclear reactor, other methods of operation, seeing and hearing equipment, up and down movement, air, weapons and life aboard it. The organization of material- a method that reports historical background to clarify both the theory of submarine warfare and the principles of atomic propulsion- makes the difference between ordinary ABC's and the enlightened view presented here.
