Sit back and enjoy an epic voyage through this delightful treasure trove of maritime tales.
Here lies the author's unique concept of grouping similar but extraordinary sea experiences under twenty separate titles. His ability to do this comes out of his own extended readings in maritime lore for over fifty years. The reader is able to telescope the unusual tales of over two hundred ships in one handy volume. Mutinies, unimaginable sinkings, mystery ships sailing for years without crews, animal antics, sin at sea, accounts of piracy, wartime disasters and phenomena of the unknown are a few of the subjects recounted in pungent and quick studies.
The author provides a whimsical separate chapter of his own World War II naval service aboard the USS Washington at Guadalcanal and aboard the USS Reno, which was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine during the battle of Leyte Gulf. As National Commander of AMVETS, he also describes his personal efforts with President Eisenhower in securing the appropriation necessary to complete the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor.
