War Beneath the Waves: A True Story of Courage and Leadership Aboard a World War II Submarine
By: Don Keith
304 Pages

A seasoned chronicler of submariners' exploits now tells the tale of a heroic feat of endurance in the fall of 1943, when U.S.S. Billfish endured a 15-hour depth-charging by some uncommonly skilled and persistent Japanese antisubmarine vessels.

Further handicapping her was the fact that her captain was better at being a staff officer than he was at the extraordinarily demanding and personal job of leadership required in submarines. Nor was he the only one whose skill or nerve failed to meet requirements.

On the other hand, many of the crew rose to fill gaps and bring the ship safe home. Dealing equally with the hardware and the interpersonal dynamics of WWII submarining, Keith will inform and please both the rank newcomer to the subject and the well-read expert on it.
