The Submarine

The submarine is a piece of technology that has impacted the war effort in a large way and has changed the way battles are fought at sea making naval battle even more dangerous.  The threat of attack from an unknown underwater source makes war at sea a more treacherous place to fight.  This development in naval warfare arrived in 1775 at the hands of a Yale student named David Bushnell.  He invented and created the first offensive submarine and the underwater explosive to be used with it.  His genius is what changed battle at sea in a dramatic way.  This website is a discussion of David Bushnell; who he was and the massive development he made for naval warfare.
