SILVERSIDES by Robert Trumbull

Submarine life, afloat on duty, off duty, and submerged, in this record of an American sub's activities against the Japs. Patrol duty, shaking down, the first engagements, surface and torpedo, the efficiency of the captain and crew, the enforced intimacy, the lack of brass-hat formality, the types of men and boys, and their backgrounds. There is a Rover Boy touch that adds a certain naive air -- but the material is fascinating and revealing.
