A vivid portrait of the deadly battles that raged in the Pacific during WWII and the remarkable courage of the sailors who fought them.

Dive! World War II Stories of Sailors & Submarines in the Pacific tells the incredible story of America's "little known war within a war" - US submarine warfare during World War II.

Deborah Hopkinson is the acclaimed author of over forty award-winning books, including Shutting Out the Sky, an NCTE Orbis Pictus Honor Book and a Jane Addams Peace Award Honor book; Up Before Daybreak, a Carter G. Woodson Honor Award winner; Titanic: Voices from the Disaster, a YALSA Excellence in Nonfiction Honor and Sibert Honor boo...
