Thanks for the link. I just clicked on a random one (USS Puffer), and read through its 9 patrol history. Spent 36 hours submerged under depth charge attack and survived in its first patrol. Went on to be involved in Iwo Jima and Okinawa. Really awesome stuff.

@chipwich Among my favorite sites, that one! :slight_smile:

Here’s a bit more, for those interested in the technical/operations side, from another site…

PS: Thanks for posting it, BTW. I am kind of embarrassed by my level of enthusiasm for WWI/WWII naval warfare, at times. Don’t feel so alone, now!

Was neat reading the official report of the Archer Fish sinking the Shinano.
