5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT Read, October 9, 2002
Dan "Pegleg" Kelly has written a remarkable work detailing a short time frame in the history of the Navy Seawolves. Factual, detailed, graphic this is an outstanding work.
Having been a member of this squadron, knowing some of the men, and knowing of others,that he writes about,I know these men are NOT bigger then life. They are just average American sailors who performed in a role never before conceived and did so with a well above average effort and little public fanfare. These men never numbered more then 250 at any one time and earned the love and respect of the US Navy's famous SEAL teams. The most highly decorated squadron in the history of Naval Aviation, they were a combination of McHale's Navy and Terry and the Pirates. In school they were "jocks" and "geeks". In the fleet they ranged from below to above average sailors. In war, they made Audie Murphy look like a boy scout. One well known SEAL sums up his opinion of these young American men - They have (testicles) that clank when they walk.
Good job Dan!
