Luiz Posted November 25, 2015 Report Share Posted November 25, 2015 E' uscito l'ultimo numero (novembre) della rivista War in history (Sage). Nel succoso indice segnalo un interessante articolo di Michael Sturma che tratta dell'impiego di sommergibili statunitensi nella battaglia dell'Atlantico. Argomento negletto come dice l'autore stesso, il quale ricostruisce l'attività degli 8 sommergibili che componevano la Submarine Squadron 50 che furono impiegati nell'Operazione Torch e successivamente destinati nel Pacifico Ecco l'abstract The contribution of US submarines to the Battle of the Atlantic during the Second World War has been almost entirely neglected by historians. Admittedly that contribution was relatively small, as reaffirmed by this study of eight modern American fleet submarines assigned to Operation Torch and subsequent patrols from Britain to the Bay of Biscay and the Atlantic. Faced with stringent rules of engagement and mechanical problems, along with limited refit and recreational facilities, the American submariners found assignment in the Atlantic frustrating. Arguably the experience honed their skills for later war patrols in the Pacific, but even this is open to question sandokan and Giuseppe Garufi 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
