Inhaltsangabe: Cmdr. Lawson Paterson ?Red? Ramage was among an elite group of just seven U.S. submariners who were awarded the Medal of Honor during World War II and the first not to die in the course of his heroic exploits. He was honored for his actions in the Pacific on the night of 31 July 1944 when he kept his submarine, USS Parche, on the surface and defiantly charged into the midst of a large Japanese convoy. Ramage's close-in, furious surface rampage became the talk of the submarine force, both in terms of its boldness and its destruction of the enemy shipping. Remarkably, Parche's crew had managed to reload their torpedo tubes while their skipper twisted and turned the boat through the chaos of machine gun bullets, exploding heavy shells, and Japanese ships trying to ram them. To tell Parche's dramatic story, author Stephen Moore draws on recently discovered wartime diaries and interviews with dozens of veterans, who add rich details to the official record. Readers learn what it was like on patrol in the Pacific to endure the terrors of torpedo attacks and depth charges, as well as learn how they relieved the stress of combat on liberty. The only book to focus exclusively on Parche and the incredible ?Red? Ramage, it offers a rare, up-close look at the actions of the legendary World War II submarine, whose conning tower and periscopes are on permanent display in Pearl Harbor.

Über den Autor: Stephen L. Moore has written a number of books on World War II and Texas history, including Presumed Lost: The Incredible Ordeal of America's Submarine Veteran POWs of World War II; War of the Wolf: Texas' Memorial Submarine, World War II's Famous USS Seawolf; and Spadefish: On Patrol With a Top-Scoring World War II Submarine. A sixth generation Texan, Moore is a frequent speaker at Texas historical conferences and writes for local magazines and historical journals. He lives in Lantana, TX.

Buchbeschreibung Naval Institute Press, United States, 2011. Hardback. Buchzustand: New. 231 x 163 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. * The Pacific war patrols of the submarine Parche and its Medal of Honor winning commanding officer Only seven U.S. submariners earned the Congressional Medal of Honor during World War II. Among this elite group was Commander Lawson Paterson RedA Ramage, who was the first submarine officer to earn the Medal of Honor without perishing in the course of earning it. During the night of 31 July 1944, Ramage kept his submarine Parche on the surface and defiantly charged into the midst of a large Japanese convoy. Although the U.S. Submarine Force was nicknamed the Silent Service, Red Ramage and his crew were anything but silent on that night, dodging heavy shells, machine gun bullets and even Japanese ships which tried to ram them. Parche s crew reloaded their torpedo tubes furiously while their skipper twisted and turned wildly through the chaos for more than half an hour. Ramage s close-in, furious surface rampage became the talk of the submarine force in terms of its boldness and of the enemy shipping he had destroyed. The story of Parche s Pacific war patrols is rich with details of other torpedo attacks, surface gun actions, Japanese depth charge counterattacks and the crew s methods of relieving stress during liberty. Recently discovered wartime diaries, official records and interviews with dozens of Parche officers and enlisted men provide rich details that are rarely reported.
