Product Overview

World War II rages across the Pacific and Lt. Cmdr. Duke E. Gifford is in the thick of it. He evacuates children from enemy-held islands. Oversees the research and development of torpedoes at Pearl Harbor. And prowls the depths in the submarine Thunderfish, hoping for a chance to aim his improved "tin fish"--torpedoes--at the hulls of the enemy fleet. John Wayne brings his man-of-action persona to the role of Gifford in Operation Pacific. "I'm no theory man. I'm a line officer," Gifford barks. He backs it up with a lot of bite in a series of feverish sea battles. Yet he's also a man of heart with a loving wife in the home port (fellow Academy Award winner Patricia Neal). Ret. Vice Adm. Charles Lockwood, commander of all of U.S. Pacific submarines, was technical advisor for this rough-and-ready adventure packing real you-are-there thrills!
