At random: Fleet Admiral Halsey in a book called "The Admirals" when asked "What is the ultimate strategic weapon that is bringing the enemy to its knees? Halsey's reply "If I had to give credit to the instruments and machines that won us the war in the Pacific, I would rank them in this order: SUBMARINES, FIRST; RADAR, SECOND; PLANES, THIRD AND BULLDOZERS FOURTH."

Subject: DBF C.O. stateroom question

Didn't spend much time there, but as I recall there was a gyrocompass repeater in the CO stateroom ("telltale compass" in old Navy). Was there other indication in the stateroom, such as depth or speed (pit log)?

Always felt a bit queasy getting sent to get something signed by the C.O. when I knew he was in his stateroom. OOD told me "we would all be more than queasy if we didn't keep him informed."
