In 1776 a one-man underwater craft, designed by American inventor David Bushnell, set out from Manhattan on a daring mission to blow up the British flagship. The attack was a failure, but was still considered 'an effort of genius' by George Washington. This book looks at the history of undersea warfare before Bushnell and, with reference to a full-size replica of the Turtle, assesses its design and performance, and its implications for submarine development in the centuries to come.
