Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0451216598, Mass Market Paperback)

In February 1945, the Japanese High Command sent four submarines on a secret recovery mission to the Philippines. An American submarine wolfpack was sent to intercept them.

During the night, the submarine USS Batfish engaged the enemy. And in the ensuing skirmish, a fully armed torpedo lodged in a firing tube. With the enemy alerted to their presence, and their own torpedo threatening to destroy them, the crew of the Batfish entered into a 72-hour battle. In an astonishing display of skill, fortitude, and mariner's luck, the Batfish not only survived, but they destroyed a record-breaking three enemy submarines in a single engagement.

This is the never-before-told story of the submarine, the captain, and the crew of the USS Batfish, and a testament to the bravery of those who endured hell under the waves.
