The Navy didn't prepare much for anti submarine warfare even though it was used in WW I. Using subs was a small part in our Naval strategy, but played a large role for our foes. The Navy focused more on its bigger ships thinking the smaller ones could be built quickly. The Navy was way ahead of the Army in using aircraft for attacking enemy ships. Of course, Billy Mitchell didn't think a Navy was needed anymore. Naval aviation was controversial before the war started. It quickly showed its need. In the Guadalcanal book I just finished, they showed the B-17s as having a 1% effectiveness bombing ships.
