Product Description

This "Basic Enlisted Submarine Text" was initially published by the U.S. Navy in 1963. A slight revision of The Fleet Type Submarine, the essential reference book for the crews of WWII-era fleet boats, this book also includes information about nuclear propulsion -- with the USS Skipjack, SS(N)585 used for illustrative purposes.

The book contains a brief history of the submarine and features numerous diagrams and photographs. It offers definitions of submarine components and terminology and provides technical descriptions of various machinery and sub-systems such as the snorkel, ballast tanks, ventilation, trim, and steering.

Please note, some images that appeared in the original book in color, appear in this reprint in black and white. Care has been taken to preserve the integrity of the text.

234 pages, 8.5x11", black and white interior with color covers.
