Description
On July 31, 1942, the submarine USS Grunion, along with Lt. Commander Jim Abele and his 70-man crew, vanished without a trace in the Alaskan waters off Kiska Island. For decades the U.S. Navy revealed no further information about the sub's fate, but Abele's family never gave up their quest to discover the truth. Journalist and historian Peter Stevens here tells not only what happened to the Grunion—investigating the question of whether the sub's own Mark 14 torpedoes malfunctioned—he also tells the remarkable story of how Abele's sons Bruce, Brad, and John, with other family members, finally found the wreck in 3,000 feet of water, more than 60 years after she sank.

"Peter Stevens unreels a fascinating piece of nautical history. This real-life drama of war, suspense, and human achievement in the face of frightful odds is mesmerizing from start to finish."—Dave Palmer
