Subsunk,by Capt W O Shelford

Subsunk, the story of submarine escape
Capt W O Shelford, RN (Retd), FRSA
First US edition

Subsunk is the story of successful escapes from submarines collected from 21 navies of the world. Salvage of submarines are rarely able to be carried out in time to save lives; crews must be prepared to save their lives by abandoning ship. The author relates the many stories of successful escape and his own role in pioneering revolutionary methods of submarine escape that were almost universally adopted after WW2.

Hardback with dust jacket in good condition. Dust jacket rubbed at edges of spine and small tear (repaired) at front upper corner.  Very slight foxing endpapers.
