Hitler's Lost Sub
Back to 400 Years of Subs
The British D-1, 1908-1918. Note the shift from the Holland porpoise-like hull shape to that of a surface ship. Common in all navies of the day, this shift marked an acknowledgment that submarines would spend most of their lives on the surface and as such needed sea-keeping qualities not found in a streamlined 'underwater' hull.
