"While experiments had been made with underwater craft for at least 200 years it was not until the American Civil War that an enemy ship was successfully sunk by a submarine. The price was high, however, and whilst the target was destroyed so to was the submarine. In the summer of 1995, more than a century after the sinking, her remains were discovered off Charleston, intact and undisturbed. The author tells a very human story of eccentric science, extraordinary courage, and unresolved history."
