Image: Submarines UP CLOSE (Up Close (Sterling Hardcover)) | Hardcover: 28 pages | by Andra Serlin Abramson (Author). Publisher: Sterling (February 5, 2008)National Submarine Day (1898)
-- Celebrates the day John Philip Holland, an Irish engineer, successfully demonstrated his submarine, the Holland VI. On March 17, 1898, his submarine made her first successful submerged run, impressing observers by the US Navy Department. John Philip Holland designed submarines which, for the first time, made use of internal combustion engines on the surface and electric battery power when submerged. Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) made sketches of a submarine and William Bourne, a British mathematician drew plans for a submarine in 1578. But it was only in 1620 that Cornelius van Drebbel, a Dutch inventor, managed to build a submarine. The first submarine used for military purposes was built in 1776 by David Bushnell (1742-1824) of the US. Two rival inventors from the US developed the first true submarines in the 1890s.

Read: Submarines Up Close
-- This UP CLOSE takes readers down the hatch, below the ocean's waves, and into the exciting world of submarines. It is filled with thrilling images and fascinating details about how subs are built, equipped, maintained, staffed, and stocked. Photos provide an inside view of the Control Room and display such important elements of the submarine as the powerful main computer, torpedo tube, periscope, and ballast tanks used to raise and lower the ship. Watch the crew as they carry out their duties, and learn about the sub's sonar, its weapons, how it recycles air and water, and how it stays hidden from enemies — and pinpoints its targets during battle.
