Unheard, Unseen: Submarine E14 and the Dardanelles

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

New Year 1915. The world is locked in a terrible conflict, and Winston Churchill has conceived of a bold plan. Constantinople would be seized and Turkey knocked out of the war. The key is the Dardanelles. The British submarine E14 approached the portal of the Ottoman Empire, viewing the ominous darkness from its small conning tower, eight feet above the waves. Its commander, Courtney Boyle, had told his superiors he thought the voyage - probably the longest dive ever contemplated in a submarine - was impossible. It would also take him past the wreckage of the submarines that had tried to pass that way in the days before: their dead buried on the beach, their survivors in captivity. The crew had said their goodbyes. They had written their farewell letters and given them into safekeeping, knowing that the chances were now against their survival. This book sets out what happened next and tells the story of the pioneering submarines of the Dardanelles.
