To capture the progress of the Pacific War through Hunt’s eyes coauthors Robert Schultz and James Shell examined the young submariner's war diary, as well as crew letters, photographs, and captains' reports, and they also conducted hours of interviews. Their vivid descriptions of the ways in which sailors dealt with the stress of war while at sea or on liberty show a side of the war that is rarely reported. Hunt’s submarine was the first of a new fleet of World War II boats and the namesake of a significant class. His remarkable story adds further luster to the heroic record of the submariners who served with him in the Pacific.
