“UNDERSEAS VICTORY I” By W. J. Holmes. Two-part Paperback edition, documenting the outstanding efforts of American submarines during World War II. During World War II Homes, a former submarine officer, served on the staff of Admiral Chester Nimitz in the Combat Intelligence Unit. He also wrote the book “Double-Edged Secrets.” Holmes starts his impressive books with submarine action just prior to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. He then takes you through the entire U.S. sub conflict in the Pacific, ending with the official Japanese surrender in September 1945. Any edition of “Underseas Victory” is a very difficult to locate.
Part I “1941-1943: Against The Odds.” With the Pacific Fleet lying in ruins at Pearl Harbor, a fearless little band of Yanks in a handful of obsolete “Tin Fish” fought to stem the mighty tide of Japanese conquest. Zebra Paperback edition 350 pages, no maps, photos or index.
