Osprey Warrior 82 : US Submarine Crewman 1941-1945

This book examines the 'Dolphins' of the US Navy submarine force, covering recruitment, training, service conditions and combat experiences, as well as discussing the effects of advances in torpedo technology on crew roles. The Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941 battered the surface fleet, however the submarine force escaped unharmed. It was up to the 'Silent Service' to spearhead the naval war against Japan by cutting her supply routes and neutralizing her naval threat. By August 1945, US Navy submarines had made 488 war patrols. The achievements of the 'Silent Service' did not come without a price, some 3,500 American crewmen were to loss their lives. Text by Robert Hargis with illustrations by Velimir Vuksic.
