New in the Library - The Submarine Review - July 2007 Issue

The July 2007 issue of The Submarine Review, published by the Naval Submarine League, has just arrived.

A few selected topics:

  • Survivor's Story - USS Flier (SS-250) - The sinking of USS Flier was recently featured here on the AIMM Blog
  • The Early Life of USS Albacore (AGSS-569)
  • US Submarine Ready Status - 07 December, 1941
  • USS North Carolina (SSN-777) Christening
  • Submarine News from Around the World
Regular readers of the blog know that we have a nearly complete collection of back issues of The Submarine Review (we only lack one issue from the last 24 years). This collection is an invaluable resource for anyone doing submarine research.

The USS Flier and USS Albacore articles are especially interesting because both are first-hand accounts, written by people who LIVED the events. Also, if you want an idea about the future of the US Navy, the article about USS North Carolina is well worth reading.
