RED SCORPION: The War Patrols of the USS Rasher (SS-269)-- Submarine. The Rasher sank 18 enemy ships and destroyed 99,901 tons--the second highest tonnage of the war. Written by the son of a 'mustang' who served in the Rasher,

Click to EnlargeThe USS Rasher had an extraordinary record in World War II: she sank 18 enemy ships and destroyed 99,901 tons--the second highest tonnage of the war. Her fifth war patrol is the stuff of legends. In August 1944 during a single night surface attack on a Japanese convoy off the Philippines, she sank the escort carrier Taiyo and three marus, and later during that same patrol she sank another ship. Reading more like a novel than an operational history, this book covers all aspects of the Rasher?s combat history in a way that both the general reader and veteran submariner will appreciate. Author Peter Sasgen is the son of a Rasher crew member, and from his father?s perspective he follows the sub from the builder?s way through eight action-packed patrols to war?s end. His richly detailed descriptions of submarine operations include lively commentary by former shipmates and excerpts from patrol reports along with a close examination of patrol procedures, communications, life guarding, and other topics rarely covered in such detail. Sasgen also explores the essence of submarine combat--aggressive leadership--and its role in the Rasher?s success.
