“PIG BOATS” By Theodore Roscoe. Foreword by Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, USN. The true and exciting story of American fighting submarines of World War II. U.S. submarines swept the Pacific from Alaska to Tokyo and spearheaded the destruction of the Japanese Navy. Operating alone or in wolf-packs, these hunter-killers of the deep courageously fought against unimaginable odds. This is Roscoe’s abridged edition of the originally published hardback book, “United States Submarine Operations in World War II.” Every significant war-time patrol, and every grim action and nerve-shattering depth charge, it’s all here in one book. 1967 Bantam Paperback edition. 449 pages, 10 maps, countless illustrations and an impressive 5 page appendix. No photos or index.
