The Gallant and Tragic Career of the WWII Submarine, USS Snook
By Cline, Rick
Descripton: One of the top-scoring U.S. submarines of World War II, the record of the USS Snook (SS-279) stands high within the fraternity known as the "Silent Service." During her nine aggressive war patrols against the Japanese, Snook sank 19 vessels totaling nearly 74,000 tons. Another 13 enemy ships suffered damage inflected by her. Yet despite Snook's impressive accomplishments, her name has remained overshadowed by her other, more famous sisters. Less than five months before the end of WWII, Snook dissappeared without a trace, taking a brave and seasoned crew of 84 to their watery graves. This book is the first to tell Snook's story.
