À travers l'épopée d'un équipage de sous-marin, dirigé par le Commandant Pop Perry, et son adjoint le Lieutenant Duke Gifford (incarné par John Wayne), on évoque la difficulté qu'eut la marine américaine à améliorer l'efficacité des torpilles équipant ses sous-marins pendant la période critique après l'attaque de Pearl Harbor.

Im Pazifik wütet der Zweite Weltkrieg, und Lt. Commander Duke E. Gifford steckt mittendrin. Er evakuiert Kinder von Inseln, die sich in Feindeshand befinden. Er überwacht die Entwicklung von Torpedos in Pearl Harbor. Und er durchpflügt im U-Boot die Tiefen des Meeres – denn er wartet nur auf die Chance, seine verbesserten “Blechfische” (Torpedos) auf den Feind abzufeuern.

Durante la II Guerra Mundial, Duke Gifford, un duro comandante de submarino y su ex mujer, ven como las esperanzas de una reconciliación se ven constantemente interrumpidas por una serie de peligrosos acontecimientos que les llevan a intervenir en el rescate de un grupo de huérfanos en una isla capturada por los japoneses.

Lo "squalo tonante" è un sommergibile in azione nel Pacifico contro i giapponesi; durante un'azione, il comandante perde la vita per un'avaria ai motori. Gli succede il secondo ufficiale, subito sospettato di aver lasciato morire il suo predecessore. Alla fine chiarisce la sua posizione e si rappacifica anche con la moglie.

Durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial, Duke E. Gifford é o segundo no comando da USS Thunderfish, um submarino que está disparando torpedos que ou explodem muito cedo ou nunca explodem. É um problema que ele vai finalmente assumir pessoalmente. Ainda mais pessoal é sua missão de reconquistar sua ex-mulher, uma enfermeira; mas ele vai ter que reconquistá-la de um aviador da marinha, que também vem a ser o irmão mais novo de seu comandante.

Duke E. Gifford is luitenant-commandant op onderzeeër Thunderfish. Hun missie tijdens WO II is het evacueren van kinderen in vijandige gebieden. Ondertussen is hij ook verwikkeld in een privé-zaak.

2차 세계대전 당시 미 해군 잠수함 선더호의 부함장인 듀크 기포드는 어느날 아버지처럼 모시던 페리 함장이 일본군의 사격에 의해 목숨을 잃어 슬퍼한다. 하지만 슬퍼할 겨를도 없이 함장의 친동생이자 어릴 때부터 기포드에게 열등감을 느껴왔던 밥이 진주만으로 복귀한 기포드에게 영웅이 되기 위해 페리 함장을 일부러 죽였다고 비난을 쏟아 놓는다. 한편 재차 작전에 투입된 선더호는 일본군의 대규모 함대에 포위 당하고, 절대 절명의 순간을 맞이한다

V celém Pacifiku zuří 2. světová válka a velitel americké ponorky Thunderfish, poručík Duke E. Gifford (John Wayne), bojuje se svými torpédy za slávu vlasti. Evakuuje děti z ostrovů obsazených nepřítelem a dohlíží na vývoj torpéd v Pearl Harboru. Je to zkušený námořní důstojník, ale také citlivý muž, na nějž doma čeká milující žena. Technickým poradcem tohoto dobrodružného thrilleru, který vás vtáhne do děje jako byste sami pluli pod hladinou oceánu, byl víceadmirál Charles Lockwood, velitel amerických ponorek v Pacifiku za 2.světové války!

После уничтожения тихоокеанского флота США коварной атакой японцев в Перл Харбор, для борьбы с врагом остались лишь подводные лодки.
