BOOK REVIEW

"Cruisers for Breakfast is a book about two fleet submarines in World War II... The saga of the USS Darter, lead ship in it's class, and USS Dace, is an epic tale of the sea and the courage of sailors in war. Cruisers for Breakfast details how the Darter and Dace were working as a 'Wolfpack' seeking-and-destroy team in search of enemy shipping. Researched and written during a five-year period by Tacoma (WA.) author John G. Mansfield, Jr., the 302-page book is based on personal interviews with nearly every surviving wartime crewmember from the two submarines. The resulting story is historically accurate, humanly compelling and loaded with suspense and action-filled excitement. Besides the many extensive interviews and the wealth of historical research Mansfield collected, he also used many previously unpublished photos donated by the veterans of Dace and Darter to add an exciting visual presence to the book. Historians and combat readers alike will find a treasure trove of new and factual materials in this excellent volume." Bob Rosenburgh - Veterans Magazine
