Книга: Royal Navy Submarines - 1901 to the Present Day Автор: Cocker, Maurice Формат: PDF Размер: 47.7 mb Качество: Хорошее Язык: English Год издания: 2008 Страниц: 71 The Observer%27s Directory of Royal Navy Submarines is published at the very moment that naval history has recorded a further significant change in naval warfare. The Falklands campaign will occupy historians for years to come. It contains many %27firsts%27 and many lessons. Single-ship successful actions always sparkle in the pages of history: but few mark a major turning point in naval warfare. The sinking of the Argentine cruiser General Belgrano by HM S/M Conqueror marked such a turning point. It is the first time that a major surface combatant has been sunk by a dived submarine, capable of keeping up with its target indefinitely, and able to select the tactical moment to strike, under the operational command of a headquarters 8,000 miles away. The immediate effect was to deny the Argentine surface naval forces any further participation in the conflict. Few single-ship actions have had such a profound strategic result. The full story of the Royal Navy submarines%27 contribution to that conflict will rightly remain undisclosed for some time to come; but the impact of their presence upon the imagination of their foes goes without saying. Imagination is also the spur of the student. Any serious researcher will welcome this directory, because it provides a convenient and comprehensive catalogue of British submarines from which he can check statistical data.
