The Japanese know perfectly well that the answer to her attack is proper strangulation of Japan - strangulation altogether.

Hey fellow WWII readers, this is a must read. A real eye opener in how similar we were to the Nazi's in use of the undersea boat. The history of the technology and how rapidly it improved is a unique part of WWII. Of course the story behind the men makes this a book you will stay up all night to finish. Read it!
