Unfortunately, the operations of the Japanese submarines during the war time have not been duly covered in any of the publications, though there is considerable number of the books covering the American, British and German underwater fleets. The present volume is intended to fill the existing gap in information and provide a required historical background covering the creation of the submarine fleet and making their pre-war strategy.
The author has covered the actual wartime operations of the subject submarines. The content is highly detailed but remains easily accessible to the non-technical people. It presents a truly sound history of the events that took place in the course of the Second World War addressing the role that the Japanese submarines played and providing an insightful professional look into the underwater warfare of the subject period.
The author has done an excellent job providing readers with the explanation of the ineffectiveness of those submarines. Technical part of the book is really perfect and will be appreciated by the engineers. the information is supplemented with numerous rare photos, illustrations and operational maps. The list of submarine losses is provided in the Appendix.
