First launched in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, in 1953, the USS Albacore is now on display for the public—a beautiful piece of intricately designed machinery. And although there is a vast collection of photographs and other historical materials that describe the pioneering submarine and her missions, there is nothing quite like hearing the stories of those who built and served on her.

USS Albacore AGSS569: An Oral History is the result of those determined to celebrate the USS Albacore’s remarkable history. This collection of twenty-three engrossing oral histories—the narratives of the civilians and sailors who worked within her hull—will immerse you in her rich and groundbreaking story. These accounts have been carefully collected and shared in the hopes of breathing fresh life into a thrilling chapter of US naval history.

Entertaining and insightful, USS Albacore AGSS569: An Oral History is a must-read for anyone who enjoys viewing history through the lens of the human experience. By exploring the extraordinary stories of the men and women who planned, built, deployed, and sailed the submarine, this book captures the essential spirit of the vessel herself.

All proceeds from the sale of USS Albacore (AGSS569) An Oral History will accrue to the Friends of Albacore, a volunteer committee of the Portsmouth Submarine Memorial Association – a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.
