Lost for 60 Years: The Most Unusual Search for the USS Grunion
by John Abele
In July 1942 the USS Grunion, an American submarine commanded by Lieutenant Commander Mannert "Jim" Abele, dove to evade a Japanese attack roughly 10 miles northeast of Kiska in the Aleutian Islands, and was never heard from again. John Abele will take us on the remarkable journey in search of his father’s submarine.
