the real tale of the lack of submarine HMS Thetis remains to be shrouded in secret, even now, a few seventy-five years after her tragic sinking. On 1 June 1939, HMS Thetis sank in Liverpool Bay on her maiden dive with the lack of ninety-nine lives. It was once the worst peacetime submarine tragedy ever to be suffered by way of the Royal army. once the upcoming catastrophe was once said, a major rescue operation was once fixed via the Royal army, yet following a listing of misunderstandings, political posturing, pink tape and sheer incompetence, the operation resulted in abysmal failure with in basic terms 4 of the group being rescued. there have been many ongoing recriminations and a couple of felony battles following the Royal Navy’s inner most inquiry and the following public inquiry. Even after the sort of forensic exam, nobody used to be held to be culpable for the catastrophe. because of media assurance on the time, a couple of conspiracy theories have been spawned, a few gaining extra credence than others in mild of the inconclusive findings of the reputable reviews. In Thetis: Submarine catastrophe, David Paul, having studied the occasions surrounding the tragedy of HMS Thetis for a few years, examines the problems which ended in the catastrophe and attracts a few convincing and devastating conclusions.
