Voyage of Horace A. Bass APD 124 by Mr. Kenneth M. Holtzclaw B Sci
This book was written from a sailor's journal taken during his cruise on the Horace A, Bass APD 124 during the Korean War. The Bass was a high speed ship rigged to accommodate Royal Marines and Underwater Demolition Teams (Frogmen) and it did numerous reconnaissance raids on both coasts of North Korea. During this action in 1952 and eleven prisoners were taken. The raiding encompassed knocking out railroad sections and railroad bridges. The Horace A. Bass APD was just one of the many ships operating in Korea during that war. The book is a true story told by one of the crew members who served on the Bass as a radar operator. He kept a journal then which supported the book greatly.
