Radar reports 11,000 yards and closing fast! The periscope slashes up through the surface! Shinano is not yet in sight. Down scope! Again the periscope breaks the surface. There she is! She's coming right down Archerfish's throat!


"Bearing, mark!" "Two nine six!" is the report. Enright shouts again...."Range, mark!" The report...."Six five double oh!" "Angle on the bow, starboard five!" barks Enright. The tracking officer plots course and firing time. God! they'll be too close....only 550 yards! "Left full rudder! Left to course zero nine zero!" yells Commander Enright. This new course will put Archerfish on a perfect attack line.
