John Geoghegan talked about his book, Operation Storm: Japan’s Top Secret Submarines and Its Plan to Change the Course of World War II, in which he recalls the failed Japanese mission to attack New York City and Washington, D.C. following Pearl Harbor. In his book, he reports that the Japanese had planned to utilize submarines that were designed as underwater aircraft carriers. The Sen-Toku or I-400 Class, was built to transport three heavily armed planes and was to travel from Japan to America’s east coast, where it would surface and launch a surprise offensive. John Geoghegan spoke at Kepler’s Books in Menlo Park, California. close
