BATFISH The Champion ‘Submarine Killer’ Submarine of World War II. But on her sixth war patrol, Batfish made history! In February 1945, only four Japanese submarines remained in Philippine waters. Batfish encountered three of them and sank each in as many days––something that has never been done before or since. Author Hughston Lowder was a radioman and soundman aboard Batfish in World War II and served aboard the sub from the very beginning.
He requested submarine service and was given training in the brand new science of shipboard radar. Today, in commemoration, the Batfish is on display at a memorial park in Oklahoma
He requested submarine service and was given training in the brand new science of shipboard radar. That took time, as did the building of the sub, which was not launched until 1943; it's assignment: unrestricted warfare against Japan. There follows a daily log of the ship's activities until V-J day-battle scenes, shipboard decisions, hellbent shore leaves. Today, in commemoration, the Batfish is on display at a memorial park in Oklahoma. Naval buffs will enjoy the tang of shipboard life and appreciate the sense of scale exhibited, the avoidance of overblown action or overwrought emotion.

This is another exciting history of the submarine war in the Pacific. While Batfish did not have the the great tonnage sunk when compared to the USS Tang or USS Wahoo, she did have the distinction of sinking three Japanese submarines on the same patrol. Those subs almost assuredly were carrying important military & civilian officials fleeing the American Army as it moved to recapture the Philippines. Well written by a member of her crew.

Most people, when asked, will say that if they had to choose the way they were going to die it would be at home, in bed, surrounded by loved ones, with ample time to say goodbye. When asked in what way they would least like to die, two of the top three are being burnt to death and drowning. The submarine changed people's idea of warfare at sea in much the same way as the machine gun; poison gas and aerial bombing changed ideas of how war should be fought on land.
