After Pearl Harbor, Captain Richardson is given command of a submarine with instructions to destroy Japanese shipping in the Pacific. Richardson's missions go well at first, but when he takes on the infamous Japanese destroyer nicknamed Bungo Pete, a terrifying game of cat and mouse ensues. From the training of the crew right through to the breath-taking climax, this is a novel that reeks authenticity. Based on true events experienced by the author during World War II, this story will have fans of Tom Clancy and Lothar-Gunther Buchheim gripped from start to finish. 'If ever a book had a ring of reality, this is it' - New York Times
