This is a nostalgic and compelling picture of men at war, serving with the United States Navy during World War II. Here is all the excitement that C. S. Forester fans have come to expect, and what's more, a brilliant display of the author's special love of the sea and his impressive knowledge of seamanship and advanced naval warfare. You are a witness to courage and discipline amid great danger and the ever-present threat of death.
With disarming insight into the laughter and pain, Spartan discomfort, monotony, lack of privacy, and never-ending threats that make war what it is, C. S. Forester steers a tight course for the truth and a bright course of action and entertainment. This is a great collection, showing once more the Forester talent for telling a fine story and telling it well.
