The author of The Bedford Boys, The Longest Winter, and The Few, as well as the biographer of Jack London and Robert Capa, here gives us a harrowing survival story from World War II. The Tang was the deadliest submarine in the American fleet, having sunk 31 Japanese ships in just nine months of operational service. It was sunk on October 24, 1944, not by the enemy but by a faulty torpedo of its own.
"Their submarine was dead, 180 feet below the surface of the Pacific Ocean. Somehow they survived. They were tortured and beaten. Somehow they survived. Alex Kershaw has done it again as he brings to life World War II's greatest submarine survival adventure."—James Bradley
