9780028810843: War in the Boats: My WWII Submarine Battles

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.

Review:

"The human side of submarine warfare . . . Exciting reading."

A unique book . . . May easily become a military classic.

Reality and intensity are the chief watchwords of this unique and highly personal memoir.

The human side of submarine warfare . . . Exciting reading.

"Bill Ruhe and I were both caught in the early crucible of World War II, both of us in submarines. Here is how it felt. I endorse every word."
