INTO THE DARK WATER/STORY OF 3 OFFICERS AND PT-109

Made famous by her final commanding officer, John F.Kennedy, PT-109 is one of the most celebrated naval vessels in American history. Behind the familiar account of the future president and the boat's violent demise is its little-known record under two previous officers during the swirling battles around Guadalcanal. In these battles, America's small, fast-boat flotillas would sally out to probe the Imperial Japanese Navy's strenth, vying with opposing destroyers whose larger armaments were able to blast a PT boat to pieces. It was a constant hit-and-run and dodging between searchlights across Iron Bottom sound as the PT boats darted in among the enemy convoys, like a "bar-room brawl with the lights turned out".
