O’Kane, winner of the Congressional Medal of Honor, learned many of his aggressive tactics from his time as exec on the Wahoo under the command of Dudley “Mush” Morgan. Morgan did all sorts of things that most commanders considered fool-hardy including steaming on the surface during daylight when within flying distance of Japanese bases. Everyone else remained submerged during daylight, hunting only at night. He also had the temerity to define “reconnoiter” as going right into an enemy [...]

This is the third book about or by Richard O'Kane I have read. It really is a book about leadership and the ability to get the most out of the people you work for or with. Some of the attitudes toward the enemy seem harsh but these men knew that losing was not an option. Thank God there were men like this to save us from the evil of facism. It is a very interesting read though not superior to the two books written by O'Kane himself.

Awesome narrative history of life on a submarine in the Battle for the Pacific in WW2. Awesome story about an awesome man! Listened to the unabridged audiobook on Audible.

This is my all-time favorite WWII story. It reads like an action novel. The submarine service was an incredible group.

Well done,

This book is a superbly written chronicle of World War II US Navy submarine warfare in the Pacific. It is a very well researched history book, yet reads like an adventure novel. I literally could not put it down. Lots of interesting trivia about life on the submarines during WWII, technical details, and stories of incredible heroism such as the sacrifices of Capt. Cromwell and Cdr. Gilmore. Highly recommended to anyone interested in the history of WWII submarine warfare.

A good WWII two book about subs, which I had never read about before. I was very impressed not only by there service but the amount of damage they did to transport ships. Which actually was huge. The man the book was about. Richard O'Kane , was the skipper with the most kills. This book was not just about him but the sub Fleet as a whole good and bad, from top to bottom. A very telling story that is still going on today with men in Washington. People with there own agendas. Then there are those [...]

The Bravest Man is an excellent book. It is about the courageous US submarine captain Dick O'Kane, who captained a highly successful submarine in the Pacific during World War Two. It is a fascinating story about an incredibly bold man. The author does a tremendous job explaining why Captain O'Kane's crew respected and loved him so much. I highly recommend this book for everyone, especially those you enjoy reading American History, World War Two History and biographies.

A Quiet Hero and a Heroic CrewThe officers and men of the USS Tang were the embodiment of "The Greatest Generation." With very little public fanfare they brought the war that Japan started to her own shores. Twenty seven Japanese ship sinking later, her job completed, the surviving officers and men who served on her so gallantry and survived her last patrol finally came home.

I have always enjoyed books and movies on submarines. I loved both the book and movie of The Hunt for Red October. Having read The Greatest American Hero makes Red October appear tamed this story was for real. If you are into WW II, this helps us understand the critical role of "The Silent Service".

The last of the great submariners.I spent twelve years in the modern fleet ballistic submarine. We had no idea what we were doing. If we fought the ship we would need to launch our missiles. So we fought each other. This book reflects an era long gone. When crews lived and died together. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know what real submarining is all about.

I love World War II history books, and this is one of the best and most interesting I have ever read. It is fascinating to learn how life aboard a submarine was lived, and how they fought the war. Highly recommended.

Great story Inspirational story and great examples of old mindsets to new amazing land difficult life of a true naval hero worth the read. If you like historical/factual books.

Very good book about WWII submarine operations.

An absolute must read if you want to have an amazing experience being aboard a highly advanced WWII attack submarine. I can't suggest this book enough.

I've read countless WWII books but only this one regarding the silent service. A great read whether or not you're interested in war books.

Great read for the WWII submarine fan.

paperback 4x7

An incredibly interesting read about an incredible man, and crew!

Clearly they were the Greatest Generation!
