Not in Anderson or Paine, The Submarine Registry and Bibliography. “August 11, 1966, a man floating on a small life raft is fished out of the sea near Brest, France. Exhausted, cut and bleeding, nearly incoherent, he identifies himself asJosef Papp, a Hungarian from Canada. He is dressed like a pilot. Bystander s are sympathetic: Where are you from? Canada. Airplane? No, submarine. Where are your comrades? What submarine? By myself. My submarine. Thirteen hour trip. Impossible! Not impossible. 300 MPH jet submarine! Thus began the story which has raged in a storm of controversy through the Canadian press, radio and TV ever since. Papp has been called a liar, a fraud, a madman. Yet he did build a submarine. Here for the first time is the full story in his own words.” - from the back cover Slightly cocked, spine creased, else very good. Uncommon. 75.00
