Author Alex Kershaw is widely praised for his enthralling nonfiction. In the harrowing war saga Escape from the Deep, he recounts the incredible exploits of the U.S. Navy's deadliest World War II submarine, U.S.S. Tang. From one end of the Pacific theater to the other - dodging mines and depth charges from hundreds of enemy vessels along the way - the 80 men of the Tang became legends. By 1944, they had undertaken more combat actions, including direct surface engagements, and sunk more Japanese ships than any other Allied submarine. Even after the Tang was accidentally sunk by one of her own malfunctioning torpedoes and the nine surviving crewmen were captured by a Japanese patrol boat, their uncommon courage allowed them to persevere through months of inhuman torture before finally being liberated.
