From Our Editors

Bobette Gugliotta vividly expresses the courageous spirit of the men who stared disaster in the face under the seas in wartime. This insightful volume also goes beneath the surface, to illustrate the vital roles played by the crew members’ wives, filling a gap that most naval historians tend to ignore. Moving, fascinating and inspiring, Pigboat 39: An American Sub Goes to War chronicles the experiences of the brave men on an American submarine during the Second World War.
