The thunderous roar of exploding depth charges was a familiar and comforting sound to the crew members of the USS Barb, who frequently found themselves somewhere between enemy fire and Davy Jones's locker. Under the leadership of her fearless skipper, Captain Gene Fluckey, the Barb sank the greatest tonnage of any American sub in World War II. At the same time, the Barb did far more than merely sink ships - she changed forever the way submarines stalk and kill their prey. This is a gripping adventure chock-full of you-are-there moments. Fluckey has drawn on logs, reports, letters, interviews, and a recently discovered illegal diary kept by one of his torpedomen. And in a fascinating twist, he uses archival documents from the Japanese Navy to give its version of events. The unique story of the Barb begins with its men, who had the confidence to become unbeatable. Each team helped develop innovative ideas, new tactics, and new strategies. All strove for personal excellence, and success became contagious. Instead of lying in wait under the waves, the USS Barb pursued enemy ships on the surface, attacking in the swift and precise style of torpedo boats. She was the first sub to use rocket missiles and to creep up on enemy convoys at night, joining the flank escort line from astern, darting in and out as she sank ships up the column. Surface-cruising, diving only to escape, Luckey Fluckey relentlessly patrolled the Pacific, driving his boat and crew to their limits. There can be no greater contrast to modern warfare's long-distance, video-game style of battle than the exploits of the captain and crew of the USS Barb, where the sub, out of ammunition, actually rammed an enemy ship untilit sank. Thunder Below! is a first-rate, true-life, inspirational story of the courage and heroism of ordinary men under fire.

This overview of programming languages, their history, current applications and future direction, is based on the proceedings of the second conference on the History of Programming Languages. The book looks at successful languages, as well as those which aren't so well known.

Programming Languages: Principles and Paradigms by Allen Tucker and Robert Noonan provides balanced coverage of both the principles of language design and the different programming paradigms. The principles of language design are covered using a formal model and a hands-on laboratory suite that uses a Java interpreter to implement the formal model. This approach gives students an excellent grasp of language design theory and its relationship to practice. It also lays the foundation for the paradigms that are presented in the second half of the book. The text presents and contrasts six major programming paradigms: imperitave, object-oriented, functional, logic, concurrent, and event-driven programming. Through the use of one language for each paradigm, students gain a deep understanding of the paradigm without being distracted by a profusion of languages.
