Almost as entertaining as its subject, this is the story of a true twentieth-century navy original, Rear Admiral Daniel V. Gallery. Mixing conventional biographical narrative with excerpts from Gallery's abundant writings, fictional and nonfictional, the book makes it abundantly clear that, although capturing the German U-505 in 1944 and lobbying to have it preserved in Chicago in 1954 were the admiral's finest achievements, they weren't the only ones. Gallery was an Olympic wrestler; an early naval aviator; a charismatic and effective commander of units of many sizes, including a carrier task group; a gifted writer, especially of humor; and a stormy petrel on behalf of his beloved navy and, particularly, its carriers--and the foreword by novelist Herman Wouk, Gallery's friend, cites a few additional dimensions. A welcome portrait of a man who added much to the effectiveness of the U.S. Navy and to the amount of fun in the cosmos. Roland Green
