Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The classic nonfiction World War II submarine combat thriller, written by a man who actually fought the battles.

The war beneath the waves.

For the World War II submariner, every day was a life-or-death trial: going to sea for months at a time; existing in dank, claustrophobic conditions; enduring long stretches of monotonous silence punctuated by adrenaline-spiked episodes of paralyzing fear and victorious elation. It was a duty few men could handle—and even fewer would survive.

This is the true story of those brave men who served and too often died under the ocean surface, written by a man who was there. Edward L. Beach masterfully weaves his gripping experiences aboard the USS Trigger with those of other boats fighting the war in the Pacific. Part action-packed combat chronicle, part testament to the courageous sacrifices made by those who never came back, this is a compelling eyewitness account of the war as few have seen it.

Synopsis:

This compelling, personal account of the war beneath the sea interweaves the story of the author and the crew of his boat, the USS "Trigger," which lost most of its crew, with the equally thrilling tales of other battle-hardened submarines and the brave men who fought in them.

Synopsis:

A compelling, personal account of the war beneath the sea, Submarinel interweaves the story of Edward L. Beach and the crew of his boat, the USS Trigger, which lost most of its crew, with the equally thrilling tales of other battle-hardened submarines and the brave men who fought in them. A veteran of twelve war patrols, Beach authentically recaptures the moments of elation, desperation, and numbing fear that were part of these warriors' daily lives as they stalked enemy submarines in the Pacific.
