ABOUT THE BOOK ABOUT THE BOOK
PRAISE PRAISE
Synopsis

Synopsis

Naval warfare in the Pacific changed completely with the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. The strategic emphasis shifted from battleships to much more lethal, far-ranging weapons systems; one of these was the submarine. This book details the design and development, classes, weapons and equipment, tactics and operational history of the US submarine in World War II. Detailed tables, photographs, and superb color plates depict the force that had an effect far beyond its size - the submarine accounted for 55% of all Japanese shipping losses, despite suffering the highest percentage loss of any unit of the United State Armed Forces in World War II.

"This is one of the best books on the subject and while really a primer on the subject, provides enough information to be interesting and to whet one's appetite for more. It is a book that I found quite interesting and I know you will as well." -Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com

"Overall, this new addition to the New Vanguard line of books from Osprey Publications delivers to the reader good , clear, information about the U.S. submarines in the time frame covered... Recommended from this modelers point of view." -Mark Smith, AeroScale

"
We have here a good subject and lots of information that Mr. Jim Christley was abble to condense well, showing the relevant points and even adds some curiosities without getting “off course”." -Rui Matos, Aeroscale
