1st Patrol / 2nd Patrol / 3rd Patrol / 4th Patrol / 5th Patrol


Tedium. Training. Torepedo Runs. Silent Running. Even absurdity.

Every war patrol had its share of sense-numbing routine and heart-racing excitement.
Following are word-for-word excerpts from the war patrol reports filed
by the USS Icefish's commander following each patrol. The reports were declassified in 1972.

Complete copies of each war patrol report are available from the
National Archives and Records Administration, which can be reached by calling (301) 713-7250.
