Description
In the days after Pearl Harbor, the small, ill-equipped arm of the Navy known as the Submarine Force stood between the shattered U.S. Pacific Fleet and the might of the Japanese navy. Here military historian Flint Whitlock and decorated WWII submarine veteran Ron Smith present accounts collected over two years of interviews with aging submariners, recording the stories of their endeavors before they were lost to history.

"A lively account of wartime U.S. Pacific submarines that expresses the claustrophobia of fighting boats undergoing depth charges and the other dangers of the deep in the war against Japanese shipping.... A rousing good read."—William Tuohy
