United States Submarine Operations in World War II by Theodore Roscoe is a classic history of the role of the United States Navy submarines in World War II, earning him the title of "grandfather" of World War II American Submarine historiography. Because the book was written shortly after the war, later scholars have found errors or omissions in its facts.

It was later published as Chapter 4 in Off to War: Franklin Countians in World War II by Roscoe Barnes III (Burd Street Press, 1996). Off to War presents the memories and experiences of 13 World War II veterans from Franklin County in Pennsylvania.

As World War II approached, many Americans preferred not to get involved . America officially entered the war and now had to fight on two fronts: Europe and the Pacific.

As World War II approached, many Americans preferred not to get involved and America's isolationism was reflected by the passage of Neutrality Acts. This was precipitated in July 1939 when Franklin Roosevelt announced that the . would no longer trade items such as gasoline and iron to Japan, which needed it for its war with China. In July 1941, the Rome-Berlin-Tokyo Axis was created.

US neutrality in World War II ended after the Japanese (who were allied with Nazi Germany) launched a surprise attack on Hawai'i's Pearl Harbor.

For the United States, the Second World War was simultaneously fought in two theaters of military combat, in Europe and in the Pacific, a war involving sixteen million American men mobilized into the armed forces-405,000 of whom lost their lives.

World War II was the deadliest military conflict in history. An estimated total of 70–85 million people perished, which was about 3% of the 1940 world population (est. billion).

Somehow World War II has become the Jewish holocaust, not everyone else’s. My interest is the predominance of propaganda and lies over truth. Roosevelt’s warmongering foreign policy, publishers shut their doors to him, and only his personal friendship with the head of the Yale University Press allowed his critical 1948 volume, President Roosevelt and the Coming of the War, 1941, to even appear in print.
