USS Tang (SS306) American Submarine War Patrol Reports Nov 10, 2007
This would serve as an excellent reference if it were not for inaccurate data. The claim of eight men surviving the loss of Tang vice the actual nine and, listing 85 officers and men on board during the fifth patrol, vice the actual 87, caused me to put the booklet aside. To delve further into this work would be a waste of time.
