The silent deep: the Royal Navy Submarine Service since 1945

Hennessy, Peter, 1947- author; Jinks, James, author

In the 114 years since its birth, the Royal Navy Submarine Service has stretched from the North Pole to the South Atlantic, from the Far East to the Barents Sea. The UK is girdled with the infrastructure required to support this vast enterprise; and the submarines of its Trident system form the sole basis of the UK's position as the world's reluctant nuclear power. Yet this is a subject that remains shrouded in secrecy. To this day, the Ministry of Defence responds to all enquiries about submarine operations with a simple phrase: 'The Ministry of Defence does not comment on submarine operations'. Written with privileged access to both documents and personnel, 'The Silent Deep' is an authoritative history of the British submarine service since the end of the Second World War

Hardback, Book. English.
