The Japanese invented a air dropped torpedo with wooden fins that permitted it to work in shallow water. Most torpedoes dropped from planes go several feet under water before they level off. The new torpedoes with wooden fins were able to operate in the shallow water of Pearl Harbor and sink (or damage) many ships. Early bombs dropped from planes were not as accurate at hitting a ship as torpedoes, so torpedoes were the preferred method of attacking ships early in WWII.

There were a number of Union operations and strategies employed by the Union to end the Confederate rebellion. Some were more effective than others. For example the blockading many Southern ports was not that effective due to the inability to catch privateer ships under the cover of darkness and the South's use of torpedoes to sink Union ships. The Union made repeated attempts to defeat Robert E Lee's Army of North Virginia In the western theater taking control of the Mississippi River and blocking supply routes. The Union destroyed much of the Souths infrastructure in rail roads and farming land. Union strategies revolved around the idea of placing pressure on various parts of the South at the same time. These coordinated efforts and naval-army expeditions were also part of Union operations.
