Item description for U.S.S. Barb (SS-220): American Submarine War Patrol Reports by P Weaver Everett...

Among the most successful of all American fleet type submarines, U.S.S. Barb made a total of twelve war patrols. During the course of the war, Barb was credited with sinking a total of 26 enemy ships, including the escort aircraft carrier Unyo. During her final five war patrols, under the command of Eugene B. Fluckey, Barb set a record for innovation and aggressiveness unmatched in the submarine service. In a series of rocket attacks during Patrol 12, Barb became the first American submarine to launch rockets in combat. During the same patrol, volunteer saboteurs slipped ashore and blew up a coastal train, in the process becoming the only Americans to "invade" Japan during the war. An incursion into Namkwan Harbor, on the China coast, during the eleventh war patrol, earned the Medal of Honor for Fluckey. This volume contains the complete text of the 12 war patrol reports filed by Barb's wartime commanding officers. Also included is a Foreword by former Barb officer Everett P. Weaver, an Introduction and extensive notes.

Reviews - What do customers think about U.S.S. Barb (SS-220): American Submarine War Patrol Reports?

As Good as it Gets  Aug 6, 2007
After reading "Thunder Below" by Adm. Fluckey I had to get the war reports. Even though it is a no nonsense copy of the official reports you can tell without seeing who submitted the report when Adm. Fluckey took command. He interjects his wit into the deadly seriousness of combat which probably raised a few eyebrows at ComSubPac. While his novel contains personal thoughts and conversations, the patrol reports are the actual day to day conditions of the barb. It is a must have companion to "Thunder Below", and is very interesting reading if you are an ex submariner like myself.
