Abstract:

From the tragic Marine Corps landing at Tarawa in 1943 that spawned the UDT "frogmen," to the beaches of Normandy, Kwajalein, Okinawa, and Korea, to the formation in the 1960s of the U.S. Navy SEALs, Fane takes the reader along as the men swim alone through mines and anti-invasion obstacles, treacherous reefs, and enemy machine-gun fire, scouting beaches and clearing invasion approaches before an assault. Also included are Fane's heart-stopping Arctic diving experiments in the 1950s and his pioneering development of submersible vehicles, mixed-gas scuba gear, and lock-in/lock-out operations with Navy submarines.
