The man who led the salvage efforts to raise a sunken US Navy submarine recounts the mission in a tale "that will surely rank among the epics of the sea" (The Philadelphia Inquirer). The sinking of the submarine S-51 was one of the greatest tragedies in American naval history. Due to a miscommunication and subsequent collision between the sub and a passing steamship on a September night, the S-51, including thirty-three of its crew of thirty-six, sank to the ocean depths. The tragedy of the S-51 captivated the nation, and was a fixture in the pages of American newspapers. The story took on a whole new dimension when the navy decided to take over the salvage of the thousand-ton behemoth from a civilian company.   Heading the crew tasked with this impossible feat was Edward Ellsberg, at the time a lieutenant commander. On the Bottom is Ellsberg's account of the successes and failures he and his men experienced as they attempted an astonishing feat of engineering and bravery: the first salvage of a submarine from the open ocean.  … (mere)

Written over 90 years ago, the volume I checked out from the library is 89 years old, torn, stained, missing picture, rebound at least a couple of times and sporting 5 punctures that go 40 pages in from the title page. This doesn't read quite like fiction, as it really isn't, but is sort of an incident by incident short story retelling of how the S-51 submarine was raised from 160+ feet of water in stormy seas. What is mostly absent in this narrative is anything above the level of what was going on at the scene. Since the impetus for this mission was almost entirely political and the initial urge was to contract out the inevitable failure, there must have been a fair deal of second guessing going on when the winter called a halt and new divers had to be trained, not to mention when a storm wrecked the first effort at raising the S-51. Clearly, the S-51 was raised, and much was learned and new technologies established. ( )
