“Even though the U.S. government continues to deny it, Gregory Freeman has dug out the true hidden story of the first mutiny in the history of the U.S. Navy. You’ll enjoy this high seas thriller.”—James Bradley, author of Flags of Our Fathers, Flyboys, and The Imperial Cruise
"This is a real nail-biter, a genuine page-turner. Just when you thought you had heard everything about carrier operations during the Vietnam War, here is the story of the mutiny that the US Navy didn't want you to know about. Page, by agonizing page, you are below deck as everything unravels and everything you thought you knew proves to be wrong. It's always exciting to read a book that provides new or overlooked information about events you thought were set in stone within the historical record, but in Troubled Water, Gregory Freeman not only tells you about it, he takes you there -- aboard the USS Kitty Hawk, as mutineers gradually alter the course of an American warship from measured precision to chaos and anarchy."-- Bill Yenne, Author of Aces High, the Heroic Saga of the Two Top-Scoring American Aces of WWII. and Rising Sons: The Japanese-American GIs Who Fought for the US in WWII
"Gregory Freeman is a master of riveting and thoughtful examinations of military sagas that no one else has the courage to take on. Troubled Water is his finest book in a distinguished career." --Gregg Olsen, author of Heart of Ice and A Wicked Snow

Good job Mr. Freeman...Good Job!!.
Gregory A. Freeman's Troubled Water: Race, Mutiny and Bravery on the USS Kitty Hawk is one of the most riveting books I've read, perhaps ever.
From early on there are far too many inaccuracies to make the book a true report of the events occurring during this incident.
I did several years aboard a naval vessel myself and I find this book very hard to believe. You can't tell me that a crew of mostly white men let a small number of blacks (less... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Charlie Foxtrot
