 Japanese Submarine Books

Battleground Atlantic, Japanese Submarine
Hardbound Book
How the Sinking of a Single Japanese Submarine Assured the Outcome of World War II
Billings. In the early hours of June 24, 1944, U.S. Navy warplanes patrolling the Atlantic sank the Japanese Submarine I-52. This riveting narrative examines I-52's mission to deliver its gold cargo to the Germans and return to Japan with the lethal ingredients of a doomsday weapon - the radiological bomb - that would have turned much of America into a radioactive wasteland. 312 pages, 6"x 9", hardcover.

Imperial Japanese Navy Submarines 1941-45
Softbound Book
Stille. During World War II, the IJN was at the forefront of submarine technology. It fielded the largest pre-nuclear submarines in the world (some capable of carrying floatplane bombers), fast combat vessels and midget submarines, all equipped with the best torpedoes available. But despite this, the fleet was surprisingly ineffective. Here, you'll get an up-close look at the astounding technical advances of these vessels - and learn about the wartime tactics responsible for their failure. 48 pages, B&W photographs and color illustrations, 7"x 9", softcover.

The Second Attack on Pearl Harbor
Hardbound Book
Operation K and Other Japanese Attempts to Bomb America in World War II.
Horn. From Kawanishi H8K "Emily" flying boats that covered more than 4,750 miles to bomb Pearl Harbor in 1942, to the thousands of bomb-carrying balloons designed to ride the jet stream across the Pacific and create panic and terror in American cities, to plans for submarine-based floatplanes that would bomb the continental United States and the Panama Canal, this book provides a wealth of new material and technical data on Japan's mostly unknown plans and operations. 360 pages, 6"x 9", hardcover.
