Meet the dive-for-glory torpedo devils of the USS Thunderfish
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!

Editor's Note
World War II serves as the backdrop for this undersea tale, which dramatizes the adventures and crises encountered by seamen aboard a naval submarine. At the center of this story is the continuing love affair between a naval officer (John Wayne) and a nurse (Patricia Neal) -- who are divorced from each other.
