Overview: This epic World War II saga follows the USS Squalus and Sculpin as they play out their dramatic destinies in the Pacific. The author, a seasoned journalist, re creates their entire perilous journey. The Squalus sank during a test dive in 1939, but thirty three trapped crewmen were saved thanks to the revolutionary use of the McCann diving bell. The Sculpin’s role in that historic rescue is just the first of many incongruous twists of fate that brought the two subs together after the Squalus was salvaged and rechristened the Sailfish.
