From a December 8, 1997 review on the Amazon website: "Of all the elements of Allied victory in World War II, perhaps the single most vital was American industrial production. The figures speak for themselves: over 5000 new ships carried an average of 8000 tons of cargo for every hour of the war. This unprecedented feat came at a price. Thousands of seamen and over 700 ships went down in attacks by U-boats, aircraft, and mines, in famous invasions and lonely waters. Their sacrifice is detailed in this impressive record, the entries organized chronologically and listing the date, time, and position at the time of attack, the owner and operator, master, year built, tonnage, draft, cargo, armament, and other details, this information supplemented by a narrative describing the action, casualties, and the fate of the survivors. Highly recommended as essential for the WWII reference shelf, and of interest to all students of that conflict."
