Not since the first novels about the mutiny on the Bounty has a high seas drama of adventure, politics and treachery, captured the senses as Hell Ship. In January 1918 a US supply vessel, the USS Cyclops, set sail with an angry crew and a bitter captain. Forty of the men had just brought accusations against him for drunkenness and abuse. Every league she sailed tensions increased. The captain had the Exec. arrested. He treated the men like dogs and began walking the bridge at night in his longjohns and a derby hat. By the time the vessel made an unscheduled stop at Barbados, she was a hell ship. After the great ship left, she vanished, leaving in her wake rumors of mutiny and an illegal execution at sea.
