Sep 12, Charles T Elston rated it it was amazing. It gives an unvarnished picture of the successes, failures and difficulties involving early submarine technology. It also describes the ingenuity of the crew in keeping their "guppie" combat ready. Also, for those unschooled in the terminology, definitions are included at the end.
Oh no, there's been an error

Large amounts of information about the Snook can be found on the internet, so that will not be repeated here. This patrol began on 24 September. On 30 October, Salmon attacked a large tanker that had been previously damaged by Trigger.
Welch, Andrew W.
This tanker was protected by four antisubmarine patrol vessels which were cruising back and forth around the stricken ship. Salmon fired four torpedoes and made two good hits, but was forced to dive deep under a severe depth charge attack by escort CD Unable to control leaking and maintain depth level, she battle surfaced to fight for survival on the surface. Salmon turned away to give her crew a few precious minutes to correct a bad list and to repair some of the damage. CD suffered 4 killed and 24 wounded and was unable to reply because of the closeness of Salmon and her higher freeboard.
Salmon began sending out plain language directions for all other subs in the vicinity to attack, giving the position of the action. This probably further discouraged the enemy who, fearing other submarines in the area, began milling around pinging on sound gear. Salmon took advantage of a rain squall and slipped away.
