Alex Kershaw is widely praised for his enthralling nonfiction. In this harrowing war saga, he recounts the incredible story of the U.S. Navy's deadliest World War II submarine, the USS Tang. Across the Pacific theater, dodging mines and depth charges, the 80 men of the Tang became legends. By 1944, they had sunk more Japanese ships than any other Allied submarine.

Professional reviews

"Kershaw details the journey of the U.S.S. TANG submarine across the Pacific during WWII and its crew's ultimate capture and torture by the Japanese. Narrator Richard Poe delivers a powerful reading that makes the TANG and its crew the central focus of the listener's attention. Poe makes each character as real and honest as the last; the crew members are stern, commanding, and terrified. With strong resolve and steady pacing, Poe lets the story unfold in a matter-of-fact tone that brings a sense of authenticity and drama that propels the listener to the heart-wrenching climax. Poe never ceases to impress, commanding the listener's attention from start to finish. L.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
