The story of Tang and her gallant crew ranks with the most amazing of naval history. Whether rescuing Navy fliers off Truk or stalking enemy convoys off Japan, Tang carried the war to the enemy with unparalleled ferocity. Tang's skipper on all five of her war patrols, Rear Admiral Richard H. O'Kane is acknowledged as the top submarine skipper of World War II. His personal decorations include three Navy Crosses and the Congressional Medal of Honor. He retired as a rear admiral from his command of the Submarine School, rounding out twenty years with the boats. He also wrote the classic Wahoo: The Patrols of America's Most Famous WWII Submarine. Praise for Clear the Bridge! "There is no doubt that Tang was the best. . . . Most of the rest of us wondered what it was she had that the others didn't. And here it is, in this extraordinary 'tell it as it really happened' book, written by the most daring, most professional submarine skipper of the war."--Capt. Edward Beach, author of Run Silent, Run Deep   "A classic of naval literature. . . . A stirring tribute, not only to [Richard O'Kane's] gallant crew, but to all World War II submariners."--Michael D. Hull, Military Magazine   "Reading of [Tang's] career and of the men aboard her is one of the great reading experiences of my life."--Broox Sledge, The Book World… (mer)

See my review of Wahoo by O'Kane. This follow-on book is similar in writing style to the first book. Excellent reading. Good stuff. ( )

4784. Clear the Bridge! The War Patrols of the U.S.S. Tang, by Richard H. O'Kane Rear Admiral, U.S.N. (Ret.) (read 15 Dec 2010) This book is by the captain of the U.S.S Tang, which had an illustrious career in the Pacific War. All five patrols are related in detail, complete with lots of technical detail. One who served on subs would enjoy it more than I did. Some of it was repetitious though one must admire the men and the outstanding success they had, albeit the end is dolorous since the sub was sunk by its own torpedo! ( )
