Submarine duty in World War II was extraodinarily dangerous - more than 20 percent of US submariners lost their lives. What kind of man faced these odds, day after day, in a cramped, leaky sub hundreds of feet below the sea? Bill Ruhe was one. A 26-year-old ensign, he kept a journal on eight action-filled patrols against the Japanese in the South Pacific. This book describes this unique combat and the courageous individuals who withstood its extreme pressures.
