Description

This volume traces the career of the submarine the USS Puffer from the laying of her keel and her commissioning on April 27, 1943 until her departure for the scrap yard on June 27, 1946. Compiled from interviews with former crew members as well as other contemporary sources, it follows the crew of the Puffer through nine war patrols, emphasizing the connection between the physiological and the psychological as it relates to submarine service. Events recollected in the book include the First War Patrol which resulted in a record-setting 38 hour submergence because of enemy fire; the amazing transfer of torpedoes while surfaced in enemy waters; and the wild bombardment of Japanese shore installation with the 5th deck gun.
