    Excellent post Rice.
    I am very interested in the early Pacific war period and thoroughly enjoyed the small details in the article.
    One line in particular jumped out at me
    The paragraph that ended

    The weapon did not fail.
    We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union
