United States Submarine Operations in World War II by Theodore Roscoe is the complete list of actions for the duration of the war. I read it and the similar "Destroyer Operations in World War II" while working as the night librarian in the engineering building at Notre Dame during 1956/7. After many years and over 1000 and counting, I am still reading WW 2 books with great interest.
Enjoyed your review of NFL Head Coaches. My era is also the 70s. My friend and I call them "our guys" because they were around our age. Of course I read the bios of the men I remembered as well. Great volune!
Noticed you liked Clockwork Orange, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also about a group of violent kids (and also a bit dark). I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary (and a sample chapter) in case you'd like to read more about the book before you commit:

Thanks so much for the add :)
Have a wonderful upcoming week.
