Sighted Sub, Sank Same: The United States Navy's Air Campaign Against The U-Boat
- Air, Ground, & Naval Warfare, World War II
The story of the United States Navy’s use of air power to hunt down and destroy German submarines unfolds in dramatic detail in Sighted Sub, Sank Same.
Nazi Germany’s efforts to deny supplies from reaching Europe came at a high price, losing 783 U-boats and approximately 30,000 men between 1939 and 1945 with land and carrier-based naval air units sinking 83 German submarines of the 159 sunk by American aircraft.
This gripping narrative contains over 200 photographs, allowing for a visual imagery of the campaign. Plus, personal interviews, interrogation reports, and after action reports weave a fascinating history about the naval air campaign in the Atlantic, Caribbean, and Mediterranean Theaters during World War II.
