About this product
- DescriptionThe riveting true story of Japan's top secret plan to change the course of World War II using a mammoth submarine a generation ahead of its time. In 1941, the architects of Japan's sneak attack on Pearl Harbor planned a bold follow-up: a classified program to build a fleet of underwater aircraft carriers designed to launch a surprise and potentially devastating attack-this time against New York City and Washington, DC. Japan built this fleet of top secret submarines-the Sen-toku or I-400 class of subs-which were, by far, the largest and among the most advanced subs of World War II. This entire operation was unkwn to US intelligence, despite having broken the Japanese naval code. And the amazing thing is how close the Japanese came to pulling off their mission. Meticulously researched and masterfully told, Operation Storm tells the fascinating story of the Sen-toku, their desperate push into Allied waters, and the dramatic chase of this juggernaut sub by the US Navy.
