He is promoted and given command of a brand new class of submarine, a fleet boat called Firefish. Based in Perth, Australia, the Perth boats are the only American forces capable of hitting the Japanese in the Western Pacific. The Firefish sinks more ships than any other Perth boat on her first war patrol, but Storme’s unconventional tactics frighten his crew – who nickname him the Iceman.
