John's presentation is entitled "WEST COAST SUB ATTACKS DURING WWII."  The California coast was SWARMING with Japanese submarines in the weeks immediately following the attack on Pearl Harbor.  Between December 10, 1941 and October 1942, nine Japanese submarines sunk a dozen merchant ships between Vancouver and San Diego as well as shelling the California coast on more than one occasion--episodes little remembered today. His talk is based on interviews he conducted with the Japanese naval officers who participated in the attacks. These interviews form the backbone of his non-fiction book, OPERATION STORM, which "The Wall Street Journal" called, "a fascinating, meticulously researched, and deft account."
