Description

The unbelievable true stories of the heroic men who rode submarines and protected the United States through the twentieth century. In Heroes Beneath the Waves, many of the brave men who sailed beneath the sea into unknown territory share their experiences, fears, and thoughts. Here are true stories of teenage boys who left farms, small towns, and inner cities to defend the United States and democracy worldwide. In the early 1940s, many considered it the adventure of a lifetime to sign up for US submarine duty. While some paid for that adventure with their lives, those who survived their experiences at war came home older and wiser. Trained for years to keep silent-for "loose lips sink ships"-many still believe what they know to be classified and refuse to disclose even the minutest of recollections. Others, however, want to leave a legacy of reminiscences for people to learn and live by, with the knowledge that freedom is never truly free. Heroes Beneath the Waves was written to honor the men who served-and are still serving today-on submarines.
