Lavishly illustrated...This is a very interesting book, highly relevant to post-war harbor defense, and highly recommended.
Bolling Smith, The Coast Defense Journal
The authors revealed the story in a well organized and easily read text. Original artwork brings some of the great missions to life, and displays the vessels in beyond what most photographs can. The photographic choices are very interesting. Many are useful for modelers and artists. This book should be welcome to those interested in Axis special forces, naval operations, submarines and torpedoes.
Frederick Boucher, KitMaker Network
In this book the authors have done a superb job of covering the development and deployment of all the various types of Axis midget submarine (and there ware more than you'd think). The book has a lot of superb period photos of these craft and this is additionally enhanced by some excellent art work ... an excellent title and one that I'm sure you will find a fascinating read.

Details the naval history and weapons of the approximately 2,000 small, stealthy submarines built by German, Japan and Italy during World War II.
Axis Midget Submarines covers just what the title says, midget submarines from Italy, Germany and Japan.This is an excellent book and well illustrated with a great sense of history. I recommend it to all fans of the submarine and especially midget subs.
