Bluejacket Paperback Book Series

This vividly detailed account of life aboard U.S. submarines in the Pacific during World War II is told from the perspective of a junior officer. First as an ensign in charge of torpedoes, the author made seven patrols in the USS Sculpin and four more in the USS Pintado. With this book, first published on 1991, he offers an engrossing chronicle of the horror of enemy attacks from air and sea, the frustrations of malfunctioning torpedoes, and the exhilaration of successful sinkings of Japanese naval and merchant ships.
