Thanks, Fred. Great review. Sounds like a great book too.

On "fire projectiles weighing a ton or more over distances of several miles", would be surprise if their range was anything less than 20 miles.

Submarines like airplanes must have been pretty primitive in World War I. The Holland submarine that was the basis of all submarines was produced in final form only in about 1900, and they were tiny, used mostly for developing tactics. Most Navies then built subs to their own design for the war based on the Holland design. They were very slow when submerged and could not stay submerged for extended periods except when equipped with snorkels.
