Summary
This history of submarine building at the Portsmouth Navy Yard during World War II examines the remarkable production and efficiency of the managers and workers at the Navy's premier ship building facility. Focusing on the progressive management strategies employed by the yard, Watterson, a Navy veteran and independent historian, highlights the superior production speed and quality and adaptive and innovative design improvements made by the engineers and workers as they outstripped private shipbuilders and launched 32 finished submarines in just one year. The work includes numerous table and figures as well as several black and white photographs. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
