Domville-Fife's book, Submarine Warfare of To-day, is an outstanding historical account that delves into the fascinating world of underwater battles, specifically focusing on how the submarine menace was met and ultimately overcome. Through detailed descriptions and analysis, Domville-Fife offers an absorbing look into the inventions, devices, and strategies employed during this tumultuous period of naval warfare.

One of the key strengths of this book is its comprehensive approach.

He vividly portrays the experiences of submariners, their bravery, and the challenges they faced beneath the waves. Through personal anecdotes and accounts, the author highlights the tense and often dangerous nature of this form of warfare, adding a humanistic element to the narrative.

One of the book's few drawbacks is its occasionally dense writing style. Some readers may find the level of technical detail overwhelming, requiring a certain level of prior knowledge or interest in naval history. However, this does not detract significantly from the overall value of the book, as Domville-Fife's passion for the subject matter permeates each page.

Submarine Warfare of To-day is a highly valuable resource for anyone interested in naval history and the evolution of warfare. Charles W. Domville-Fife's meticulous research and engaging writing style combine to create an authoritative account of the challenges faced and overcome during this pivotal time.
