 am working on a new book about USS Billfish SS-286, one of the first Balao-class submarines.  I'm especially interested in any information I can find -- deck logs, crew lists, personal accounts -- on her second patrol in November 1943.

On that patrol, she came under an intense depth-charge attack that lasted more than 15 hours, and that forced her to go near 700 feet deep--almost 300 feet below test depth.  During that attack, there were numerous examples of heroism that I plan on detailing as part of the book.

Any info would be appreciated.
