Naval History Magazine
The February 2010 issue of Naval History magazine is now available in the museum store for $5.00 (including sales tax).
It has several submarine-related articles that may be of interest:
- "Cat on a Cold Steel Dive Plane" - The CO of a Sturgeon-class submarine tries to improve the morale of his crew...
- "Naval History News - Churchill's Lost Sub Found" - HMS E18, lost in 1916 during the First World War, was discovered in the Baltic. Evidence suggests she struck a mine while operating on the surface.
- "Naval History News - Two Still Missing" - Three of five Japanese submarines brought to Hawaii after World War II and then sunk in 1946 have been located, but the location of two more (I-203 and I-400) remains a mystery.
- Historic Fleets - Fifty Years Ago, An Unusual Vessel Made History" - The story of the Bathyscaph Trieste, now on display at the National Museum of the U.S. Navy in the Historic Washington Navy Yard.
- "Two Coconuts and a Navy Cross" - The story of the survivors of a crashed Navy PB4Y, later picked up by USS Gunnel (SS-253). (You have to read the article to find out about the coconuts, but it's a heck of a story...
- "Slaughter in Paradise" - German U-Boat operations in the Caribbean.
- "Another Piece of the Torpedo Junction Puzzle" - The sinking of YP-389 by U-701 off Cape Hatteras, NC. (U-701 would be sunk by an Army bomber weeks later in the same area.)
