The War, Underwater
Avid naval historian Captain James Ransom, US Navy (retired) will speak on submarine operations of the U.S. Asiatic Fleet in the first months of World War II. Submariners performed heroically in the defense of the Philippines and the Dutch East Indies with the odds stacked against them. This is a story of courage and determination in the face of overwhelming opposition, retreat, and defeat, but it presaged the eventual dominant performance of American submarines in the Pacific War.
