Signing up for United States Navy submarine duty is the adventure of a lifetime, and although sailors can sometimes be reticent regarding their service, this anthology collects firsthand accounts of life on board 27 different subs, including Scorpion, Nautilus, Pogy, and Sea Fox. Offering a rare look at underwater warfare and the comradery it can create, this book is also an affectionate tribute to the men serving their nation in the most dangerous capacity available to them. Along with a host of statistics and fun facts, here too is an overview of the 52 U.S. subs lost in World War II.
