Product description

By 1945, the U.S. Navy's submarine force in the Pacific had sunk over a thousand enemy cargo ships and tankers supplying the food, weapons, and oil Japan needed to continue to fight. Yet this once mighty merchant fleet still thrived in the Sea of Japan, where, protected from American submarines by a seemingly impenetrable barrier of deadly minefields, they provided a tenuous lifeline for the Japanese. American commanders, desperate to avoid an invasion of the home islands, believed that if these ships, vitally important to the enemy's war effort, were sunk, Japan would be forced to surrender. For the first time ever, author Peter Sasgen tells the complete, incredible story of Operation Barney, the daring plot to penetrate the minefields protecting the Sea of Japan and decimate the enemy's merchant fleet. The mission's success, or failure, hinged on a new experimental sonar system designed to guide nine American submarines, nicknamed the Hellcats, past the mines and into the sea to reach their targets. To a man, the crews of these submarines knew their chances of survival were slim. Based on original documents and personal letters, Sasgen crafts a classic naval tale of one of World War II's most dangerous missions.
