Summary ✓ The War Below 102 Tes the camaraderie exhilaration and fear of the brave volunteers who took the fight to the enemy’s coastline Scott recounts incredible feats of courage from an emergency appendectomy performed with kitchen utensils to the desperate struggle of sailors to escape from a flooded submarine trapped on the bottom as well as moments of unimaginable tragedy including an attack on an unmarked enemy freighter carrying 1800 American prisoners of war The casualty rate among submariners topped that of all other military branches The war claimed almost one out of every five subs and a submarine crewman was six times likely to die than a sailor onboard a surface ship But the submarine service accomplis. The 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 tragically circled back and hit it sinking it in 180 feet of water just months before the war s end This story alone is worth reading the bookAs for those torpedoes the success the US had in WWII is freuently attributed to our industrial capacity the ability to out produce all other combatants However do not delude yourself into thinking that the euipment was the best That s right many American lives were lost due to malfunctioning or poorly designed euipment But that s the nature of war men are expendablePerhaps that s why submarines have received so little press because they so directly show the cruelties of war Most Japanese freighters sank in two minutes or less with few survivors Some disintegrated on impact sinking instantly To be a sailor on a freighter was a virtual death sentence if an American sub spotted your smokestackSeveral times the book alludes to the inadeuate preparation the Japanese made for fighting submarine warfare This is highly ironic surely the Japanese command staff was aware of how central submarine warfare was to the European wars including WWI fought 25 years earlier This again demonstrates how decisions made 1000s of miles from the front result in the deaths of many men Why are we so ready to go to war whenever a politician or bureaucrat demands itBut perhaps the Japanese were unwitting victims of American propaganda You don t have to read very much about WWI or II to come across political leaders condemning Germany for their attempts to control the Atlantic by using submarines Surely the Americans who so stridently condemned Germany for using submarines wouldn t use them against Japan I mean that would be hypocritical Which may be another reason why US submarine warfare hasn t received the credit it deserves for victory over Japan we would have to acknowledge the hypocrisy of itReading this book was enhanced by visiting the USS Claga a WWII sub at Patriot s Point in Charleston Harbor It gave me a small sense of what it would have been like to be in the sunken Tang in it s final hours But get there soon I understand the Claga is scheduled to be towed away and sunk as it is obviously very deteriorated His Mistletoe Bride exhilaration and fear of the brave volunteers who took the fight to the Octopussy and The Living Daylights emergency appendectomy performed with kitchen utensils to the desperate struggle of sailors to Octopussy escape from a flooded submarine trapped on the bottom as well as moments of unimaginable tragedy including an attack on an unmarked Fifth Avenue Uptown Tale Blazers enemy freighter carrying 1800 American prisoners of war The casualty rate among submariners topped that of all other military branches The war claimed almost one out of Power Engineering every five subs and a submarine crewman was six times likely to die than a sailor onboard a surface ship But the submarine service accomplis.
