Blair, Clay, 1925-1998.

Silent victory: the U.S. submarine war against Japan. - [1st ed.]. - 1072 pages illustrations 24 cm

Includes bibliographical references (pages 993-1006).

Here for the first time is the definitive history of the submarine war against Japan -- the ONLY full-scale submarine war the United States ever fought -- which has for the most part been shrouded in secrecy for three decades. Only recently have the codebreakers who played such a pivotal role in the submarine war been willing to talk about their work. And only recently have the private papers, diaries, and official reports of the submarine admirals and skippers been made available to historians.
