About the Author
The author grew up in Montclair, NJ where he attained the Eagle Scout Badge w/ Bronze Palm at age 14 and played on the Newark Academy varsity football and basketball teams. He then served in the navy during WWII, then graduated from Yale University (BS Business Administration). Next he worked in NYC banks and electronic companies. After seven years, he earned a BS Electrical Engineering degree. Next he worked for a company managing the Polaris Missile System for the U.S. Navy. This led to working for the U.S. Navy Electronic Systems Command in Washington, DC as a management engineer until retirement in 1991. His outside interests centered on the field of robotic devices and the use of computers to develop neural network applications (in medicine, maintenance, decision-making, and other IF-Then problems). Later on he compiled a Trilogy consisting of this volume and two additional volumes (with a changed Volume 1 front cover).

I would recommend this book to anyone who particularly enjoys this time in our countries history, but servicemembers would do well to read such accounts. A kindred bond can be felt even decades later.
This book also contains amazing pictures that coincide with his story, and life on the ship. It's really the pictures that move me the most in this book.
