About This Item

New York:: William Sloane Associates, 1950.. 1st Printing, so stated.. Hardbound . BINDING/CONDITION: gray binding; a Very Good book, with a Good dust jacket; publisher's price on the jacket flap is intact.. 8vo (about 8.25 inches tall) . Description: Dust jacket art by Bru Marchin. ''This is the story of the men of the United States Navy submarine, Cochino, on her last cruise. She was sunk by fire and explosion during a polar gale, four hundred miles north of the Arctic Circle, on August 25, 1949. For fourteen hours commander Rafael Benitez and the seventy-eight men of the Cochino battled to save their ship. They were burned by exploding hydrogen; they were battered and frozen by the seas that swept over the ship; they were gassed by fumes from their burning power compartments. In the end, the Cochino sank, and when the rescue operations of her sister ship, the Tusk, were over, it was a miracle that only seven men had been lost.'' This book is a full-length version of Lederer's article, 'Miracle Under the Arctic Sea' which appeared in magazine form. Lederer served in the Navy both in peace and war, first as an enlisted man, then he went the Naval Academy and gradated in 1936. This was his second book and predates the two books he wrote with Eugene Burdick.
