In this article the author discusses the role of submarines in the U.S. Navy in 2009 as compared to its role in the 1920s. He states that the submarines' unlimited warfare, which ended by naval treaties after World War I, should be restored to the current duty of submarines. He states that attaining innovative culture for submarine's duty need not aggressive officers, but calls for innovative change to confront any crises.
