Descripton: From the publisher: "From Pearl Harbor to her last and fatal voyage, the heroic story of America's most daring World War II submarine, as told by the only surviving member of her crew - Forest J. Sterling. USS Wahoo (SS-238) was the most successful submarine in the U.S. Pacific Fleet. She was the first to penetrate an enemy harbor and sink a Japanese ship. She was the first to wipe-out an entire convoy single-handedly. In her 11 short months of life, Wahoo managed an incredible 21 kills, totaling over 60,000 tons of ships. Just 45-milutes before leaving Midway Island for what would be her last and fatal patrol, Yeoman Forest J. Sterling was transfurred to other duty. The result is this book - "Wake of the Wahoo."
