The Last Patrol
Harry Holmes
Book Description: During World War II, the submarine service of the U.S. Navy suffered the highest percentage of losses of any branch of the American armed forces, with almost one in five vessels failing to return. Despite these heavy losses, however, submarines accounted for more than fifty-five percent of Japanese shipping losses. This book, first published in 1994 in hardcover, chronicles the careers of all fifty-two U.S. submarines lost during the war--their successes, failures, and fates. With some thirty photographs and a wealth of first-hand material, it offers a compelling look at a legendary fleet.
