CLEAR THE BRIDGE!! The War Patrols of the USS Tang, by Rear Admiral Richard H. O'Kane USN. A classic book on naval literature. Submarine warfare at its best. CLEARANCE SALE. --- DISCOUNTED 40% --
CLEAR THE BRIDGE!! "A classic of naval literature. In her sinking rate - one enemy ship sunk every eleven days - [Tang] was second to none. O'Kane proves that one of the most daring and professional submarine skippers of the war is also a first-rate storyteller. A stirring tribute, not only to his gallant crew, but to World War II submariners."___Military Magazine
The story of Tang and her gallant crew ranks with the most amazing of naval history. Whether rescuing Navy fliers off Truk or stalking enemy convoys off Japan, Tang carried the war to the enemy with unparalleled ferocity. Tang's skipper on all 5 of her war patrols, Rear Admiral Richard H. O'Kane, is acknowledged as the top submarine skipper of WWII. His personal decorations include THREE Navy Crosses and the Congressional Medal of Honor.
