The Epic Story of ‘The Deadly Trade’

Naval writer Iain Ballantyne presents the dramatic story of submarine warfare from its inception centuries ago through the epic battles of the 20th Century’s world wars down to today’s so-called ‘new Cold War’. Based on his recently published book ‘The Deadly Trade: The Complete History of Submarine Warfare from Archimedes to the Present’ (Weidenfeld & Nicolson), Iain’s talk considers key episodes while he also describes the stories of the brave, and sometimes rather foolhardy, individuals who have risked their lives under the sea. Come and hear the story of how an initially ineffectual underwater craft - originally derided and loathed in equal measure - evolved into the most powerful vessel of war ever seen (or rather unseen).
