About the Author:

Capt. Paul Sherbo, USNR (Ret.), a former newspaperman, served six years active duty with the U.S. Navy, including service in Iraq as the Fifth Fleet's representative to Coalition Forces in Baghdad. Paul and his wife Diana now live in Colorado.

Review:

Collisions and accidents at sea are always tragic events. Not all lead to the results as in the case of the USS Frank E. Evans in 1969. Having experienced such an event, but with no deaths involved I easily identified with this story. First impressions would have folks shaking their heads "how can ships collide on a large ocean." Naval ships operate at times in rather close formations for large vessels. This is not turning a corner in your corvette, a lot of room is required and above that, good solid communication and attention by all responsible for keeping their collective eyes on what is going on. The story would be of great interest to sailors and history buffs. It would help greatly those who have not or do not travel on the seas. It awakens you to the dangers that exist at every minute on board a ship. An error such as what happened in this event takes numerous lives, the ocean is unforgiving. The nature of the story may turn off the casual reader who is used to Hollywood's action packed thrillers, but do not put the book down. This book will result in your learning something new and you will come away from it with a new pride in those that serve in the U.S. Navy. This is a story of tragedy and survival, as the efforts of many resulted in the saving of numerous lives that would have been lost if not for the combined efforts of all. --Military Writers Society of America
