Symonds (Maritime History/U.S. Naval War Coll.; Neptune: The Allied Invasion of Europe and the D-Day Landings, , etc.) emphasizes that because no navy was fully prepared for war in , everyone got it wrong. Neither Hitler nor his naval chief gave priority to submarines, so Germany began the war with too few and never caught up.   Sailor from Oklahoma presents the life of the enlisted seaman, both before and during the war, as seen through the eyes of a young sailor from the west, who joined the Regular Navy before Pearl Harbor. Its scope spans the twilight of peace to the final days of World War II, treating the preparation for war and the actual fighting.
