Publisher's Summary

Sink 'Em All was originally published in 1951 by Vice Admiral Charles A. Lockwood, the US Navy commander of the Pacific submarine fleet during World War II.

Lockwood, in his leadership role, knew the skippers and crews of the submarines and retells their wartime successes and tragedies with an intimacy and realism often missing in second-hand accounts. Lockwood also recounts his efforts to improve the provisions and after-patrol accommodations of the submariners and of his on-going struggle to improve the effectiveness of torpedoes and other tools vital to the war effort.

Best of the best

I have read many submarine books, some fiction and most nonfiction written by captains or crew members who fought WWII in the Silent Service. Anyone familiar with this part of history has heard of Adm. Lockwood. But, in this book you get to know him and his inside view of the war, boats and crews. What a great service these submariners gave to our country and what an outstanding leader Lockwood was. He was the right man in the right position at the right time.

Pronunciation

Excellent book and reading, except for some pronunciations of names and places. Gave me a chuckle once or twice.

Terrible Narration

The story was great, the narration with his terrible annunciations and worse invictivrs left a lot to be desired.
