The U.S. Navy's development of radar as a counter to Japanese ships and aircraft is also fully covered in this book, along with an explanation of how U.S. submarines overcame their own faulty torpedoes to decimate enemy shipping. In addition, the author examines how Allied carrier aircraft, controlled by multi-channel high-frequency radio, eventually came to dominate surface actions. Also included are details of the development and use of the sensitive listening stations that relayed enemy messages to cryptographers who broke "unbreakable" codes and important information about the special amphibious craft that put troops ashore in all theaters of war.
