8vo. Black & white photographic frontispiece, 24 photographic plates. Describes the raising of the U.S.

Navy submarine S-51, which earned Ellsberg the rank of Commander, and the Distinguished Service Medal. "... a gripping account of the sinking of a submarine through collision, and the heroic efforts undertaken to rescue her crew. Commander Edward Ellsberg was a brilliant marine engineer who developed salvage techniques still in use today.

His raising of two sunken submarines in the 1920's ? including the one described in this book - led to public recognition and special promotion by act of Congress. He entered the United States Naval Academy in 1910 and was graduated as honor man of his class. After varied service on the USS Texas, he was ordered to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for post graduate work in Naval Architecture where he received a Master of Science degree.

Thereafter he specialized in construction, diving, and engineering. His many inventions have proved important contributions to naval science. During WWII his work played an immense role in furthering the Allied war effort.

In 1925 he was detailed as Salvage Officer on the S-51. As a result of his extraordinary work in raising that submarine, he was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal by the Navy (the first time that honor has ever been conferred in time of peace) and promoted to Commander. He retired from the Navy but volunteered his services for the rescue of the S-4 during which he narrowly escaped death.

In connection with his salvage work on these submarines, the Secretary of the Navy wrote to him saying: "For this work, well done, cheerfully done, and loyally done, I thank you in behalf of the Navy".Keywords: ADVENTURE SEA SUBMARINES UNDERSEA OCEAN BOTTOM SINKING NAVY SIGNED
