Reviews

"A lively account of wartime U.S. Pacific submarines...a rousing good read."--William Tuohy, author of The Bravest Men

"Only submariners understood the fear, hardships, and rewards of serving in such a specialized branch of the wartime navy. [This] powerful book ensures that readers will now comprehend some of that."--John Wukovits, author of One Square Mile of Hell: The Battle for Tarawa

"The depth of [the authors'] scholarly research is evident in the fast-paced narrative, relating vignettes of the mundane, the heroic, and the harrowing in the U.S. Navy of World War II. Together, these outstanding authors have provided an eloquent voice to the 'Silent Service.'"--Michael E. Haskew, editor of WWII History magazine
