On  April 7, 1944,  the battle hardened USS Gudgeon (SS-211) slowly pulled away from tiny Johnston Island.  Among those on board were Lt. Commander Robert A. Bonin, Lt. jg William C. Ostlund. and 77 other men. They were never seen or heard from again.  This is their story.    The whole story.

The Story of the USS Gudgeon
ANNOUNCING !
The release of the second edition of Find 'Em Chase 'Em Sink 'Em.  The second edition, published by The Lyons Press was released November 8, 2011.  It has been updated and contains fifty additional pages of the Gudgeon story, much of which derives from interviews of former Gudgeon torpedoman Chuck Ver Valin who served on Gudgeon's first four war patrols after the first book was published. Chuck then transferred to the Grenadier where he, Albert Rupp and two other former Gudgeon submariners were taken prisoner. Chuck tells the sometimes hilarious tales of the Gudgeon crew, and also talked of his time as a POW before his recent death.  He adds important factual information about the submarine's first four war patrols to make the story of the Gudgeon more complete.  

The author believes that with these and other additions and changes the second edition will be enjoyed more greatly than the first edition by the average reader;  The book contains photos of 48 of the 81 men who died during the war and updated sinking charts. The reworked skipper and ship sinking data derives from the works of Craig R. McDonald and John D. Alden's latest work entitled United States and Allied Submarine Successes in the Pacific and Far East During World War II (4th Edition).
