Description
‘This is a book of substantial importance. Here is an account of U.S. Navy submarine operations in the Pacific by the flag officer responsible for their direction throughout the war. It is that sort of book-written by a prime authority who holds strong opinions and is not afraid to air them; whose treatment is always suggestive and strikes sparks in every chapter.’ – The Naval Review

Sink ’Em All, was originally published in 1951 by Vice Admiral Charles A. Lockwood, the U.S. Navy commander of the Pacific submarine fleet during World War II.

Lockwood, in his leadership role, knew the skippers and crews of the submarines, and retells their wartime successes and tragedies with an intimacy and realism often missing in second-hand accounts.

Lockwood also recounts his efforts to improve the provisions and after-patrol accomodations of the submariners, and of his on-going struggle to improve the effectiveness of torpedoes and other tools vital to the war effort.

'It is a balanced and surprisingly objective account adequately supported by statistics and containing some interesting conclusions.' The Naval Review

Charles Andrews Lockwood (May 6, 1890 – June 7, 1967) was a vice-admiral and flag officer of the United States Navy. He is known in submarine history as the commander of Submarine Force Pacific Fleet during World War II. He devised tactics for the effective use of submarines, making the members and elements of "silent service" key players in the Pacific victory.
