Seas, Skies, and Submarines
Published in 2017
"The First World War demanded of the American Navy radically different solutions, skills and thinking. The US fleet of big ships designed to fight other big ships in classic line-of-battle formation entered an unprecedented global conflict with no answer to a German innovation--the U-boat. The navy's few primitive ocean-going submarines and an entirely new type of small warship, aptly named the subchaser, helped secure an eventual victory over the U-boat. A comprehensive convoy system quickly became a critical element in the maritime conflict demanding the escort service of nearly every destroyer in the American fleet and the outstanding seamanship that went with it." --From jacket.
