    This slim volume contains more compact information in its area than a month of research could get you in even the best library. The serious student of sub operations in the Pacific will welcome this booklet as a clear, concise document of the history of this important segment of World War II activities. —U.S.C.S. Log, publication of the Universal Ship Cancellation Society

    I ordered this book because I recently started a new job the subject matter of which is submarines. Right away I was tasked with re-writing a submitted article on one obscure aspect of the submarine war in the Pacific during WWII. This book has a very brief description of each sinking (confirmed or not, location, which sub, which patrol, date) listed chronologically. It also contains information on the classes of U.S. submarines and where each was as different times during the period covered. The back contains tables listing each patrol made, when started and when finished, where it departed from and where it returned to, who the commanding officers were, submarine specifications by class, equipment, and submarine markings. It is exactly the kind of reference I need to fact check and re-write this article and, no doubt, future articles. Note to author: WHEN WILL YOU COME OUT WITH 1943-1945??? —Anonymous on Amazon
