Product Description

Review

"A sprightly memoir by a young submarine captain in the Pacific war, written by an old man looking back as a retired admiral, perhaps a bit amazed at the feats of his reckless youth." -- Thomas E. Ricks, The Washington Post Book World

"Barb Ho-o-o-o!" The call echoed from the bridge of the submarine and dissipated, smothered in the icy fog. Read the first page

Format: Paperback
Eugene B. Flucky has made a wonderful account of his own interesting career and that of the men with whome he served and the ships on which he served. The descriptions of attacks are in such great detail that you feel as though you are in the conning tower of the sub with the crew. Time and time again you are pulled into an event that occured over fifty years ago, but through the story telling abilities of the author you feel like you are experiencing it for yourself. A great buy and a book that I am reading for the second time in less than a year. The only point that I would raise is with regards to the lack of colloquialisms, wich makes reading the book a bit laborious at times. Don't let this frighten you away however because it's a great book!!!

This is a great story is about the life of the crew on the USS Barb and what they went through on there 8th-12th missions. It is a book worth reading and keeping in your Library. It is thrilling and full of suspense.

My uncle John Lehman was on the Barb while Fluckey was on for his tours. For me the book hits home even more for that reason. To be able to know to some what my uncle went thru durring the war is very important to me. This book is great
