TRUTH !!
The one-man sub was called the TURTLE and was used in an attempt to sink British ships.
Invented by Yale graduate David bushnell, it was the first submarine ever used in combat. The TURTLE was equipped with a mine and was made of oak reinforced with metal bands. Although seaworthy, it was very hard to maneuver and ultimately failed in it's missions.
