With Submarines on the horizon, I share an interesting story of the Battle of May Island. Credits to Fredrik Knudsen. May our submarine experience be less of a disaster than the K-Class submarines of the Royal Navy.

Posted a while back on the same topic and video, the events are a constant flow of misfortune and misunderstanding leading to a massive loss of life. It's tragic how many things went wrong, and how the higher ups helped pave the way for it.

However early (WWI+WWII) submariners were among the bravest, if not the bravest military personnel in these conflicts. Can't think of a worse environment to fight in with the technology of the time.
