Product Description

Submarines face many perils as they ply the depths. A small fire or gas leak inside a submerged submarine can lead to catastrophic consequences. A grounding or collision with another vessel is usually more severe for a submarine than a surface ship. Human error has been identified as the primary cause of most accidents at sea. But the sea represents a potent enemy too and often presents more danger than even a foreign adversary. This calendar explores many of the most dramatic submarine incidents since 2000.
