Descripton: The book gives a good overview of the US Fleet Submarines of BALAO, TENCH and GATO classes, 1940-1945. The short text tells us about development history and lists the submarines' disposition. There are lots of photographs of the boats from afar and near. In particular, we see the details of the submarines' fittings (periscope, gun, radar). Color plates illustrate the camouflage schemes used.
