what the effects would be, had the US Navy utilized its V-Class of extra large submarines to run the Japanese blockade of the Philippines and deliver supplies to Bataan and Corregidor. Had the USS Argonaut, Narwhal, Nautilus, Bass, Bonita, Barracuda, Dolphin, Cuttlefish and Cachalot been used to transfer badly needed food, medicine and munitions supplies to the embattled troops on Bataan from bases at Cebu, Mindanao and Darwin, Australia, how much longer could they have held out, tying the Japanese down in trying to take the key island of the Philippines, Luzon? Each forenamed US submarine had the ability to carry, without torpedoes, well over a hundred tons of supplies on a single run and could have substantially aided and relieved the Filippino-American forces on Bataan.
