Summary
Virginia poets and fiction writers Schultz (English, Roanoke College) and Shell draw mainly on the testimony of Robert Hunt, who was torpedoman on the USS Tambor for 12 of its 13 World War II patrols 1940-44. His voice includes the diary he kept on board at the time, recent interviews with him, and a written account that he produced for the volume. Other perspectives are provided by the official reports--now declassified--and the many published histories of the Pacific Theater. Among the topics are eyewitness accounts of the Japanese attack on Wake Island, the Battle of Midway, guerrilla resupply in the Philippines, submariners' liberties in Hawaii and Western Australia, a severe depth-charging in the East China Sea, and the V-J Day "peace riots" in San Francisco.
