Are you aware that there was a movie in the 50's called "Run Silent, Run Deep" about a US fleet submarine in the BUNGO strait in southern Japan? It's a real place. Did you invent that, or were you aware of the movie, which was actually quite good?
Wasn't Cross of Iron, which was about a German soldier, a Hollywood movie? I thought that was very good.

OK. It looks that it is a naval masterpiece. The writer is, as I suspected, Commander Edward L. Beach, a WWII sub skipper that in 1960 got the command of the USS Triton, a nuclear powered sub (SSN-586).
In the movie the sub´s captain is... Clark Gable! And listen to this, the executive officer is Burt Lancaster!
And they spell "Bongo" the place where the Japanese adversary is stationed.
