War Of The Wolf

Overview

War of the Wolf chronicles the war patrols of the famous submarine Seawolf of World War II. Texas' Seawolf Park was named in honor of SS-197, lost in October 1944.

Overview

War of the Wolf chronicles the war patrols of the famous submarine Seawolf of World War II. Texas' Seawolf Park was named in honor of SS-197, lost in October 1944. Before her loss, Seawolf racked up some of the most impressive patrols of the war and finished in the Top 10 in sinkings. Had the Silent Service not been plagued with faulty torpedoes during the first two years of World War II, she would have added many more ships to her battle flag.

Under such famous skippers as "Fearless Freddie" Warder and Roy Gross, the Wolf's crew also boldly entered shallow enemy harbors, rescued downed aviators, landed commandos in the Philippines, and pioneered periscope photography. Her war started the day Pearl Harbor was attacked and ended under tragic circumstances. Relive Seawolf's exciting war patrols through the words of many of those who served aboard her, including the diary of a crewman lost with the Wolf.
