Inhaltsangabe: On August 12, 1943, 32-year-old Pete Galantin took command of the U.S.S. Halibut at Midway Island. Armed with torpedos and a 50 caliber deck gun, Halibut roamed from Pearl Harbor to Saipan, the Phillippines and the coast of Japan, sinking 13 enemy vessels - including a 10,000 ton heavy cruiser - until, on November 14, 1944, the longest, most ferocious attack ever survived by a U.S. submarine knocked Halibut out of commision.

It was a career that earned both ship and crew the Navy Unit Commendation. Now pigboat skipper Pete Galantin tells Halibut's remarkable story. Here are the men who lived and fought from cramped, close quarters, the excitement and drama of on-target hits, and the frustration and peril of all too frequent near-misses caused by malfunctioning torpedos. And here is the final, legendary battle near Luzon Strait. After sinking two enemy vessels, Halibut took depth charges that drove her under to 420 feet, wrecked her conning tower, and bent her hull inward - and survived.

Inhaltsangabe: On 12 August 1943, on Midway Island, Lt. Cdr. I. J. Galantin took command of the fleet submarine USS Halibut. For the next fourteen months, Galantin and his officers and crew would play their part in the unrelenting attack on Japan's navy and merchant marine. But it was in Luzon Strait in November 1944 that the submarine and its crew underwent their greatest ordeal. Detected and driven down while attacking a decoy, Halibut was subjected to an assault of appalling ferocity. Badly damaged, the crippled sub and crew endured hours of desperate maneuvering and helpless waiting before the enemy finally gave up.
