Take Her Deep! A Submarine Against Japan in World War II

£9.99

Product description

Hardback with pictorial dust jacket and maps on its end papers; it has black cloth covers with gilt titling on the spine and is in good condition. it contains an introduction by Edward L Beach and black and white illustrations.
The story of the fleet submarine USS "Halibut's" last mission, written by the man who took command of the vessel on August 12, 1943. He and his crew, played their part in the Silent Service's unrelenting attack on Japan's navy and merchant marine for the next 14 months.;With Pete Galatin as skipper, "Halibut" undertook four patrols, each successively more dangerous as the enemy was forced ever closer to his heavily mined and protected waters. After a two-month respite for overhauling and refitting, Galatin and his comrades took "Halibut" westward for one more patrol in Luzon Strait, where "Halibut" was subjected to a depth-charge assault.;It was "Halibut's" last mission - she was so severely damaged that she was sent back home for good. Those who served aboard her were awarded decorations and the ship was given the prized Navy Unit Commendation. In the years that followed, Pete Galatin rose to Four-Star Admiral rank in the United States Navy.
