Overview

No man above or below the waves was as admired-or feared-as this determined naval commander...

Among submariners in World War II, Dudley "Mush" Morton stood out as a warrior without peer. At the helm of the USS Wahoo he completely changed the way the sea war was fought in the Pacific. He would relentlessly attack the Japanese at every opportunity, going through his supply of torpedoes in record time on every patrol. In only nine months, he racked up an astounding list of achievements, including being the first American skipper to wipe out an entire enemy convoy single-handedly.

Here, for the first time, is the life and legend of a heroic, dynamic, and ultimately divisive submarine commander who fought the war on his own terms, and refused to do so any other way.

    This is not a Samuel Ellison Morison-like treatise on the effect

    This is not a Samuel Ellison Morison-like treatise on the effect of American submarines on Japanese shipping in the WW II Pacific Ocean. It does not delve into the differences of command technique between Ralph Cristie and Charles Lockwood. It is about an imperfect man with many character faults, a true extrovert that has been described by some as a "bully" who was ushered into a position of focusing his brash aggressive nature toward commanding a submarine to extraordinary heights of aggression using a crew who truly loved their commander as a leader extraordinaire. The only weak part of this book is the writing regarding strategy and tactics of US Pacific fleet command. That can be forgiven, but oh what a book this could have been had the author teamed up with a true Naval historian. Nevertheless, this is a five star production IMHO.

    Highly recommended. A must read.

    Undersea Warrior was a good read. It gave a good insight into the lives of the submariners during WWII. Easy to read and actually light at times although you were drawn into the close knit lives under the sea. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and would highly recommend it.
