Published by Xlibris
Written by a veteran of World War II who served aboard a Landing Ship Tank (LST) this book tells the story of the coming together of ninety-day wonder college boys commissioned in the U.S. Navy with a mustang commissioned from the ranks to be its captain and the draftees from the farms and cities to serve their country. In a time of war, fought by an all-volunteer professional army in which little sacrifice is asked for the people on the home front, this book is a necessary reminder of the time when the whole country mobilized in the defense of freedom. The author presents an up-close picture of the relationships between officers and men, and between the officers and each other and the ranks with each other. Beginning with the news of the Japanese assault on Pearl Harbor and ending with the occupation of Japan, this book presents a vignette of history that historians seldom write about.
