94 pages about the war time experiences of Robert Sheats, as a younger diver in the United States Navy, and eventually known as "the Master of the Master Divers". The diving adventures recorded here are not the typical vessel salvage or daring underwater raid that predominates military diving history of the period. The group of military divers that Robert was a part of were a small, unknown and unrecorded unit, diving under extreme conditions with minimal equipment and no pay. They were, however, all divers of the same unique rank, Prisoner of War, and their unit motto could easily be "Dive or Die."

This is the first story written about my prison camp experiences. "Diving as a Guest of the Emperor" was the most memorable and challenging period of the three years and four months while being held by the Japanese Imperial Army in the Philippines and Japan. The cartoons were drawn by a shipmate in prison camp, seeking a dab of humor. My purpose in writing this story was to leave a record for my sons and friends and it would not be complete without telling the rest of the story.Review:
"One Man's War tells the incredible underwater story of Bob Sheats' bravery and dedication to the US Navy and to the service of his country, prior to World War II through the 1960s. The book is a fitting tribute to the unique man who was such a powerful inspiration to all of us who had the good fortune to work with him, underwater or topside, during the Sea Lab experiments." -- Scott Carpenter, Astronaut
