After Pearl Harbor he reenlisted and made eleven war patrols in the Southwest Pacific. He later became Chicago Bureau Chief for Newsweek, chief editorial writer for the Chicago Sun-Times, and for eleven years had his own weekly news program syndicated to thirty-two PBS television stations.

This story is not a family read due to language. The language sounds like a bunch of sailors. In defense of sailor language, the shipmates I brought to my home always knew that they were at my home and with my family and not on the boat. I would certainly suggest that you try the book.
I had the opportunity to help build and be a member of the commissioning crew (a plank owner) on two nuclear submarines in the late 50s and early 60s. My US Navy submarine training was for diesel boats. My first assignment following submarine school, was new construction nuclear boat at Electric Boat in Groton, CT. I never went to sea on a diesel boat. I have had the opportunity to sail with and hear WW II Sea Stories, from some boat sailors who were there. GGM 3. MM1(SS)
Thanks for a good novel, sir!
The characters bought the whole thing to life and I have bought the next book as well.
The intense action scenes and knowledge shown was incredible.
Thanks for an amazing experience.
