Hitler's Lost Sub
Back to 400 Years of Subs
Papin tested the first boat, but his patron lost interest, and the second boat was never finished. Illustrations of this submarine look like a steam kettle (and, it so happens, Papin also invented the pressure cooker). An engraver might have confused the two, or the engravings may have been a joke or Papin's attempt at secrecy.
