Execellent book! Details the aggressive, bold, and initiative of one of America's finest submarine commander's during World War 2. The writing style puts you on the submarine and in the mind of the Captain while the exploits will keep you from putting the book down. ( )

This is an outstanding account of the author's five triumphant patrols in the USS Barb in the Pacific in 1944 and 1945. The intensity of the account at times rivals fiction. One is filled with admiration for the superb technical knowledge and effective leadership of the author as a sub commander. He lost not a man while commanding the sub despite the very aggressive and gung-ho manner in which he pursued the enemy. He was awarded the Medal of Honor, despite his position that only dead people should get that. An outstanding book on a brilliant career. ( )

No doubt about it, this is the absolute BEST American submarine account out there that I have read. Usually I tell folks if you want an exciting submarine warfare book you need to read the German stuff, but now I finally have an American account to recommend. This guy had b$^ls that clanked and knew when and how to push things to the brink. Get it, read it, you will LOVE it!!! ( )
