Editorial Reviews

Review

A deadly and harrowing true story filled with heroic sacrifice and sad tribute, The Last Voyage of the SS Henry Bacon is highly recommended reading for anyone with a strong interest in naval history and a unique contribution to personal, academic, and community library World War II studies collection.―The Bookwatch, March, 2002.

...brings to life the real dangers of a liberty ship crew in the Artic Sea north of Russia during World War II....a gripping tale of brave men at sea in the service of their country, working valiantly for the war effort and being ignored by their own government when medals were handed round.―Mike Ramsey in The Roanoke Times, Sunday, Feb. 3, 2002.

...Far more than an ordinary story as the narrative includes the American Merchant Marine, US Navy Armed Guard, Norwegian civilians and their daring rescue by Royal Navy destroyers, voyages to Russia, life in Murmansk and finally Convoy RA.64. All these ingredients have been woven into the meticulously researched account by the authors who were determined that this little known story of tragedy and heroism should be made known in its entirety.... A highly recommended readable book and a fine example of thorough research.―Richard Cornish, The Review, a quarterly journal of the Naval Historical Collectors and Research Association

"The authors transport the reader back to 1945 and the situation that the participants faced in that bleak Arctic Sea, through the use of oral histories, personnel interviews, and official reports. The Last Voyage of the SS Henry Bacon is a gripping sea story and conveys the imagery of what it was like to be merchant sailors and civilians caught up in the horror of the Second World War."―Professor Salvatore R. Mercogliano, Department of History, Methodist College

1.0 out of 5 stars Damaged Item, problem not rectified
By Amazon Customer on December 31, 2020
Bought as brand new 2 copies of this book as gifts. One was fine but the second came with a damaged book cover. I returned the book with the damaged cover. The seller resent a book in a plastic bag labelled "new item" with out any book cover. It honestly looks like the same book resent without the book cover. All packaging was undamaged and untampered with. My loss
