Ships Beneath the Sea, by R F Burgess

Ships Beneath the Sea, a history of submarines and submersibles
Robert F Burgess

A popular history of submarines and submersibles from the earliest crude conception in the 1300s to the most sophisticated scientific achievements today. The author shows in fascinating detail the evolution of the first underwater vessel in 1578 into such vessels as the diving bell, the bathysphere, the bathscaphe and the submarine. He also deals with travel, sea warfare, research and into the geology of the ocean bed. He highlights personalities and careers of such inventors as August and Jacques Piccard and Cousteau.
