Beanse :p2 expands Brennan’s observation of the driving belt powering the planing machine was taut and the non-driving side was slack. Brennan reasoned that if one dispensed with the non-driving side it would be possible to transfer energy to a vehicle and power it from a static power source.

The US Navy was therefore obliged to upgrade its large fleet of late Second World War destroyers to meet the increased ASW threat. Unable to operate even the small helicopters of the day, these conversions were equipped with a remotecontrolled DASH (drone anti-submarine helicopter).

Torpedo is the first dedicated study of this highly significant subject for over thirty years, a period in which much new information has come to light and the capabilities of the weapon itself have improved beyond recognition. Because of the crucial importance of the torpedo in naval history, this is a book no enthusiast or historian can afford to miss.

So the book falls somewhere between an history and an encyclopaedia This book is well written, and covers the history of the torpedo. Details of its use in two world wars are given.

So the book falls somewhere between an history and an encyclopaedia. The author refers in the text to colour photographs as being in the book, but there are no colour illustrations of any kind in my copy. The colour photographs have been reproduced in greyscale, which makes them much less clear than they should be. Interestingly I have seen a PDF version of the book that does include colour illustrations and photographs. This book is well written, and covers the history of the torpedo. A very good book on the subject.
