By Ron Young and Pamela Armstrong, Volume 2 of this trilogy on submarine wrecks of the British Isles, focuses on the South Coast, from Beachey Head in Sussex down to the Isles of Scilly. Over 150 British submarine and U-boat wrecks in British coastal waters, specifically those in the English Channel, are described in detail, including information on the vessel's type and technical specifications, its voyage history, how it was sunk, a list of crew at the time of loss, details of the wreck site and the current state of the wreck.
In addition to the mass of factual information provided by the book, it also evokes some of the stoicism and pioneering bravery that was paramount in those who proceeded beneath the waves in these vessels.
