“Alas, all that sound and fury disguised the fact that on Omaha Beach at least, the bombs fell too long, the rockets fell too short, and the naval gunfire was too brief.”
Craig L. Symonds, Neptune: The Allied Invasion of Europe and the D-Day Landings

“torpedo, too, either missed the target or failed to explode. Undaunted, Prien then headed southward, away from the Royal Oak, to reload his bow tubes. An hour later, just past 1:00 a.m., with the crew of the battleship still no wiser about his presence, he returned to fire three more torpedoes.”
Craig L. Symonds, World War II at Sea: A Global History

“damaged as to be of no further use. These losses were due”
Craig L. Symonds, The Battle of Midway
