    The History of Submarines In the year 2000, the American submarine force will celebrate the first century of service by highly skilled people in some of the most technologically advanced vessels ever built. The past 100 years have witnessed the evolution of a force that mastered submersible warfare, introduced nuclear propulsion to create the true submarine, and for decades patrolled the deep ocean front line; the hottest part of an otherwise Cold War.

    The Ethics of War Unrestricted submarine warfare is often considered a shady practice in a time of war. Unrestricted submarine warfare is when one country sets up an area that is declared a war-zone, any ships that enter this zone, military or civilian, will be fired upon without warning. Is this right? In my essay, I will weigh the pros and cons of this tactic used by the German's in WWI. The practice of unrestricted warfare cost the lives of many innocent people. No warning is given so there i...

    I have always been an American history buff. I was aware that the first use of the Submarine during war was during the American Civil War.

I found this paper as a good chance to learn more, a lot more, about early submarines and the evolution of them. With the ability to sink both large and small warships with the same percent chance, the value of the submarine is great bec...
