War Beneath the Waves: A True Story of Courage and Leadership Aboard a World War II Submarineby Don Keith
Synopses & Reviews
The gripping story of heroism under the sea, from the national bestselling author of Final Patrol and U.S.S. Billfish
In November 1943, while on war patrol in the Makassar Strait, the U.S.S. Billfish submarine was spotted by the Japanese, who launched a vicious depth charge attack. Explosions wracked the sub for fifteen straight hours. With senior officers incapacitated, diving officer Charlie Rush boldly assumed command and led key members of the crew in a heroic effort to keep their ship intact as they tried to escape. Told in harrowing detail, War Beneath the Waves is an inspiring tale of one man's leadership and courage under fire, and of the remarkable efforts of a submarine crew to do their duty and save their ship.
