There have been many books written about submarine operations over the ages, but most of them have related to strategic maritime operations or naval campaigns. Some have even revolved around specific submarines and their exploits. This book is different. It is not a ‘cut’ and ‘paste’ effort from existing material on the subject. It does not revolve around any specific campaign, battle, or submarine. It draws from the author’s training and experience and generally talks about deploying and operating submarines at the operational and tactical levels in different parts of the world.
By their very nature, submarines are stealthy platforms and every nation deploys them in a manner that cannot be revealed to, or needs to be concealed from, others. However, there are some basic principles that are required to be followed when deploying them on operational and tactical missions, and these have been highlighted in this book.
The book has been produced with a view to targeting those ‘bloggers’ who are on the Internet discussing matters relating to submarines, those who want to know what they are going in for before volunteering to serve on submarines, and for anybody and everybody interested in the business of undersea warfare. Technical descriptions and matters have been kept out so as to make the book an enjoyable piece of reading.
