“SWORDRAY’s FIRST THREE PATROLS” A novel of Underseas Combat. By Clay & Joan Blair. (Fiction) Clay is the author of “Silent Victory” and co-wrote this great World War II submarine novel with his wife Joan. The 1941 sneak attack on Pearl Harbor was barely finished when Commander Hunter Holmes began some of the most savage submarine attacks of World War II, single-handedly knocking off four Japanese troopships, two destroyer’s and a prize aircraft carrier. Swordray’s incredible exploits are all here. A very difficult book to find––popular too. The Blair’s also co-wrote the excellent World War II submarine fiction; “Mission Tokyo Bay.” 1980 first edition Bantam paperback, 179 pages, no photos maps or index. Extremely rare and never published in hardback.
