Shattered by surprise attack, the U.S. rebuilds its fleet at Pearl Harbor. And the badly damaged Submarine Division Seven holds the line against the Japanese Navy.

Every enemy ship that slips through means more lives lost. Now it’s up to Lt. Commander Jack Tremain to whip into shape a hardluck boat that’s returned from what may be the worst patrol in history. The loss of even one more American sub could be devastating.

But Tremain is determined to make the Japanese pay. Even if this is his last patrol ever.

Wolfpack 351

After a harrowing war patrol in the Sea of Japan, the U.S. submarines of Wolfpack 351 are low on fuel, torpedoes, and morale.

Their only means of escape is a narrow passage teeming with enemy aircraft, mines, and coastal batteries – and guarded by a menacing Japanese fleet led by a legendary admiral hell-bent on stopping them.

Facing the imminent destruction of the entire wolfpack, and with few options remaining, the American admirals in Pearl Harbor turn to an aging submarine, the only boat close enough to help. With time running out, the USS Aeneid – a V-boat from another era – must spring the trapped submarines from their watery prison before they meet their fates under the hull-shattering wrath of the enemy’s depth charges.
