GALLANT LADY: A Biography of the USS Archerfish Forge 2004 She looked just about like all the other diesel powered, Balao-class submarines crafted in the 1940s. But there the similarity ends. Because the Archerfish won a unique, heroic place in military history and the memories of her crew members. Here is her story: from her assembly in New England, her service in World War II, where she broke the back of the Japanese Navy and sank the Japanese super aircraft carrier Shinano, the largest ship ever sunk by a submarine ... to the details of her critical role in the Cold War, crisscrossing the oceans for six years to foil Soviet naval intelligence. An extraordinary real-life odyssey, Archerfish is a vivid, unforgettable portrait of submariners' life. 16 pages of photos, 352 pages.
New copies of Gallant Lady are now available autographed by the author and crewmember, Ken Henry.
