ABSTRACT

This study argues that the failure of submarine torpedoes during the early years of World War II were partially the result of the unique labor-management problems in the only arsenal producing this weapon before the war. Declassified National Archives material obtained by the authors records the continuous friction between unionized workers, local and federal politicians, and U.S. Navy administrators which led to morale and productivity problems at the Newport, Rhode Island torpedo arsenal. These problems resulted in inadequate production, enforced conservation of torpedoes, and a consequent lack of torpedo testing before World War II.
