Author Alex Kershaw is widely praised for his enthralling nonfiction. In the harrowing war saga Escape from the Deep, he recounts the incredible exploits of the U.S. Navy's deadliest World War II submarine, U.S.S. Tang. From one end of the Pacific theater to the other - dodging mines and depth charges from hundreds of enemy vessels along the way - the 80 men of the Tang became legends. By 1944, they had undertaken more combat actions, including direct surface engagements, and sunk more Japanese ships than any other Allied submarine. Even after the Tang was accidentally sunk by one of her own malfunctioning torpedoes and the nine surviving crewmen were captured by a Japanese patrol boat, their uncommon courage allowed them to persevere through months of inhuman torture before finally being liberated.

    " Wow! I haven't read a page-turning book about WWII in some time. This is a very well researched amazing story. It opens quite a few doors to other topics/books that are within the book. I can't wait to read Kershaw's other works now. "

    " A truely riveting book. Once I started reading this a couldn't stop reading it. This is the true story of perhaps the most highly decorated submarine in the US Navy and it couragious crew. On it's 5th patrol it's last torpedo malfunctions and turns on it with 87 men on board. Read about the harrowing escape and subsequent torture by the Japanese. "

    " Interesting as always to learn about the experiences of "the greatest generation" in World War II. Sad to think how few of them are left. "

    " I'm obviously not much of a non-fiction person, but my boyfriend gave me this book after he finished it and I ended up being utterly addicted to it! A great book for history fanatics and submarine afficianados alike. Highly recommended. "
