MacDonald & Janes, 1978, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good - in Good DJ. DJ a little faded and marked, rubbed at the head and tail. Text bright and tight.

Illustrated / decorative end papers. 3rd Impression. From the date of her departure on her first patrol in January, 1944, to her tragic loss only nine months later, Tang averaged one enemy ship on the bottom every 11 days, a rate twice that of any other U.S. submarine. Despite a short career, Tang’s sinkings ranked second among U.S. boats and made Dick O’Kane the leading submarine skipper of the war. Follow Tang from the moment of her launching to her last, fatal patrol and discover the innovative tactics and calculated daring that made her the hottest boat patrolling.
