Building American Submarines, 1914 - 1940
By Weir, Gary E.
Descripton: The author assesses the U.S. Navy's efforts between 1914 and 1940 to develop effective submarines. In particular, the author describes the work of the Navy and private industry that allowed the relatively primitive submersible of the First World War period to be replaced by the fleet submarine that fought in the Second World War.
