schema:description""With this book, Australian historian Michael Sturma puts the Harder's actions in the context of the overall Pacific campaign and draws on previously untapped sources to detail several daring missions, including one that involved the heroic Australian commando Bill Jinkins. In doing so, Sturma adds not only significant information to the Harder story, but also provides a fresh perspective on the submarine war."--BOOK JACKET."@en

schema:reviewBody""The USS Harder's fighting spirit is legendary, and its record of sinking a total of sixteen enemy ships (with a tonnage in excess of 54,000) made the submarine's commander, Sam Dealey, one of the top five submarine skippers in the war. During a single patrol his crew received credit for sinking five enemy destroyers in short-range torpedo attacks - an unprecedented feat. In addition, the Harder played important roles in rescue missions, extracting secret operatives deep in enemy territory and saving downed pilots. Only seven submariners earned the Medal of Honor in World War II: Sam Dealey was one of them. Sadly, his was awarded posthumously after the entire crew was lost off Luzon during a depth-charge attack by Japanese ships in August 1944."."
