After sinking two enemy vessels, Halibut took depth charges that drove her under to 420 feet, wrecked her conning tower, and bent her hull inward - and survived. Armed with torpedos and a 50 caliber deck gun, Halibut roamed from Pearl Harbor to Saipan, the Phillippines and the coast of Japan, sinking 13 enemy vessels - including a 10,000 ton heavy cruiser - until, on November 14, 1944, the longest, most ferocious attack ever survived by a . submarine knocked Halibut out.

Take Her Deep: A Submarine Against Japan in World War II WW2 by Admiral Galantin.

Shipping to Russian Federation. Take Her Deep: A Submarine Against Japan in World War II WW2 by Admiral Galantin. Take Her Deep! A Submarine Against Japan in WWII (USS Halibut SS 232, US Subs).

Written well, this book is easy to read. The skipper of USS Halibut describes his career and the service aboard. The Halibut took service during the second world war in the Pacific ocean, aginst the Japanese navy. After reading this book I was left with the impression the the Japanese did not have such a strong navy at all, I think that the author downplayed they role and abilities a bit too much. Also the problems with the early models of torpedos are described, something I did not find in previous books I read.

Paperback is about submarine warfare in World War II.

This book by I.J. Galantin was a great book to read! I am an avid reader of WW II books - especially Navy and submarine history. This is an excellent account of what it was like to skipper a submarine in the Pacific in WW II. He begins with a brief account of his training, then launches right into details of his experiences aboard the submarine USS Halibut. Especially riveting are the accounts of being depth charged during several battles.

Galantin's book also provides an insight into things that were going wrong with various weapons and systems in submarines. These details give the reader some insight into why the U.S. submarine service did not fare well in the aspect of casualties! His writing on these elements are not overly detailed, so the reader can easily understand them. He says he wrote this book for all the sailors who served on the Halibut and did not know anything about what went on in other areas of the ship during battle. What he also does is give readers who weren't there a great narrative of WW II submarine warfare!

I recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in submarines, World War II, or naval history. Once I started reading it I couldn't stop!

While I didn't serve on Submarines in WWII I did work on them at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in the mid 50s as a young Ltjg. I experienced test dives in a WWII Fleet boat and later models up through the ALBACORE (AGSS569), the experimental first modern high speed submarine. I got to work and talk to Chiefs and Officers who had experienced combat in WWII including depth charging.

This book brings all those experiences to life in an easy to read well written book. Even if you have no experience with Submarines this book will give you an accurate view into life aboard a WWII submarine in action. Better than any fictional novel on the subject - this is real, an easy and fast moving read that you will enjoy.
