    DOC Ö TEXT The War Below FREE é JAMES SCOTT The War Below The War Below The Story of Three Submarines That Battled Japan by James Scott does not provide much new on US submarine operations versus Japan in WW II He does take a deeper look at just three of the most successful boats USS SILVERSIDES USS DRUM and USS TANG Scott isn't uite the stickler for detail There are errors of fact eg Nimitz took command of the Pacific Fleet in December 1941 not December 1942 and descriptions of sea actions or naval maneuvers in which the navigational details or specifics of geography don't add up eg US aircraft attacking HIRYU during the Battle of Midway were hidden by the afternoon sun The attack came in the afternoon but from the east or east northeast The Japanese carrier would have been hidden by the sun The aircraft illuminated I urge interested readers to go to Dick O'Kane's

    DOC Ö TEXT The War Below FREE é JAMES SCOTT The War BelowThe story of defeating Japan in WWII usually covers naval victories MacArthur's island hopping campaign or dropping the bomb Rarely does it cover the submarine warfare that made defending a sea based empire untenable essentially defeating the Japanese from the inside This book helps remedy that deficiencyThe author follows the stories of three submarines covering most of the campaign from the early lone wolf stage when submarines hunted alone to the final wolfpack stage when the US had so many subs they could form a picket line across likely shipping lanes The lone wolf stage involved a lot of guessing where the enemy would be and experimenting how best to use the problematic torpedoes By the end of the war subs received regular communiues about convoy locations and had support from other subs But it was still a lonely business with scant chance of rescue if something went wrong This is demonstrated by the Tang which sank after its last torpedo tragic
