    During World War II, the U.S. Navy's submarine service suffered the highest percentage of casualties of any branch of the American armed forces. One in five submariners was lost. But despite the odds, these underwater warriors accounted for almost sixty percent of Japanese shipping losses and were a major factor in winning the war.
    Sixteen U.S. submarines - and one German U-boat - that saw action during WWII are open to the public. Most have been lovingly restored and authentically equipped. Based on interviews with surviving submariners and declassified U.S. Navy war patrol reports, Final Patrol takes a fascinating look at these subs and tells the personal stories of the brave sailors who lived, fought, and - in many cases - died in them. Now the public can visit and climb into these cramped steel cylinders, peer through their torpedo tubes, and imagine pulling the hatch closed and diving under the sea - perhaps for the last time - to stalk a fanatical enemy who threatened our nation's freedom.
