    I just finished reading the September issue of World War II and it was most enjoyable as usual. However I could not pass on making a comment on the mis-identification of the torpedo being loaded on a submarine on page 61. As a retired navy torpedoman I identify it as a MK 18 electric torpedo and not a MK 14 steam torpedo as the caption states. Minor erroprs aside, keep up the good work and I look forward to my next issue.
