Captain Mike McGown; Lieutenant Jimmy "Shorty" Weaver; Rear Admiral Weaver (Lieutenant Shorty Weaver's father)
Lieutenant Shorty Weaver dislikes submarine service, but his father needs his expertise at a base in 1942 Pearl Harbor. There he proves his worth, but Captain McGown doesn't like his attitude and so pushes him twice as hard as the others. One night, in an atoll, the Lieutenant torpedoes a Japanese ship and manages incredibly to escape from the other ships in the vicinity. This makes both the Lieutenant like his job and Captain McGown respect him.
Beyond Denmark, past the Arctic circle, a U.S. submarine pursues a Nazi sub tender. The ice holds both ships firm in their positions. The Nazis then decide to attack with men across the ice, but the Americans react and counterattack.
Communist submarine captain; Lieutenant Commander Perry Barra (U.S. submarine skipper); U.S. frogmen [Barnes; Burt; Dana; O'Rell]
Communist missile-launching subs are hidden in the ocean off U.S. shores in the event a war should erupt. Lieutenant Commander Perry Barra knows that it is useless for the U.S. government to denounce this and so sends frogmen to clog up a submarine and force it to surface. Having been revealed the Communist captain promises retribution, while the Lieutenant hopes that one day they'll be embarassed enough to not try it again.
Admiral Hoku Shoma (Japanese); U.S. submarine captain; Jimmie (U.S. submariner)
An American submarine travels under a Japanese convoy, directly beneath the admiral's flagship, hoping it won't be detected. It communicates the location of the convoy, but reveals itself. The sub manages to hang on until reinforcements arrive, that then destroy the convoy.
