iUniverse, 2000 - Transportation - 324 pages
Ships Beneath the Sea is the adventureous story of man's determination to build underwater vehicles for exploring the mysteries of the deep.

More than just a popular history of submarines and submersibles, it looks closely at the men behind these inventions. From alexander's legendary diving bell in 350 BC today's nuclear submarines, they are all here in dramatic detail-the magnificent men and their diving machines.

Burgess enhances this facinating evolution with over 100 historically rare line drawings and photographs of often bizarre underwater vehicles. This book records an exciting chapte of our nautical history with a well-deserved "hurrah" for the men who lived it.
