Summary
"There was no way for the commander of the USS Sailfish to know that the Japanese aircraft carrier he just torpedoed actually had on board several crew members of the USS Sculpin, the sister sub to the Sailfish which had been sunk just days earlier by enemy fire. This is the extraordinary story of the events that led to this amazing twist of fate and what happened to the Sculpin survivors."--Provided by the publisher
