United States Submarines

In May 2002 the coffee table book entitled United States Submarines will be available in bookstores. The book covers the first 100 years of the Submarine Force and also provides a glimpse of what’s to come in the future. It contains over 730 magnificent illustrations and twenty-three captivating articles. The book was designed so that readers could enjoy just flipping through and looking at the photographs or peruse the captions to gain a higher level of understanding. Finally, the articles and varied sidebars were written to be educational, entertaining, and insightful.

Published by Hugh Lauter Levin Associates, edited by retired submariner David R. Hinkle of Sonalysts, Inc., United States Submarines celebrates the United States Submarine Force in a definitive, magnificently illustrated, large format book published with the Naval Submarine League. Written by an outstanding team, including historians, authors, and experts associated with the Navy, as well as several distinguished active and retired Submarine officers, United States Submarines has over 350 pages of riveting and informative text and stories of the submarine experience. Included in the list of distinguished authors are Admiral James Watkins, Vice Admiral Joe Williams, Jr., and Rear Admiral Maurice Rindskopf, and a score of others.

Essays on submarine history and today's submariners, focus not only on the subs, torpedoes, and related technologies, but especially on the people that make it all work. The thoughtful incorporation of full color and vintage photography, portraits, recruiting posters and historically inspired paintings complements the text while adding the excitement that only spectacular illustration can bring to a book.

United States Submarines enables the history of America’s submariners to be cherished permanently in a handsome package that every submariner and many Navy personnel will be proud to own and, with its unique medallion-inlaid cover, to display. This book will be read again and again by past and present submariners, their families and friends, and the countless others that have been inspired by the exploits of the United States Submarine Force and the mysteries and excitement of undersea warfare.
