I'm plowing through some of these books at real speed.

Yesterday, I finished reading Osprey Warrior #82: US Submarine Crewman 1941 – 45. Although the German U-boats got most of the press, in reality the US submariners did the most to strangle their enemy in the war, causing severe damage to the Japanese merchant and naval fleets. This book does a pretty good job in describing what it was like for the men who served in the boats. Pretty good read.
