US Submarine Crewman 1941-1945/Robert Hargis, Velimir Vuksic. Osprey Warrior Series 82. Softcover. First edition 2003. Condition: Very good. ISBN 1841765880
This well illustrated book takes a look at the “Dolphins” of the US Navy submarine force, covering recruitment, training, service conditions and combat experiences, and discusses the effects of advances in torpedo technology on crew roles. The Japanese surprise attack on PearlHarbour in December 1941 battered the surface fleet, but the submarine force escaped unharmed. It was up to the “Silent Service” to spearhead the naval war against Japan, cutting her supply routes and neutralizing her naval threat.
