Publisher Description

The story of Tang and her gallant crew ranks with the most amazing of naval history.

Between August 1943 when she was commissioned and her loss in fall 1944, Tang completed four missions and was on her fifth in the Formosa Strait, single-handedly demolishing a convey. During this time, Tang had one captain: Commander Richard Hetherington O'Kane. Together, Tang, her crew of eighty-six men, and her Captain sank more tonnage and more enemy ships than any other submarine on active patrol.

Whether rescuing Navy fliers off Truk or stalking enemy convoys off Japan, Tang carried the war to the enemy with unparalleled ferocity.

    " This is a very boring monologue, so empty of adventure yet so full of empty dialogue. I can not recommend this audiobook. "
