9780983412304: A Ship With No Name

This is the story of rescue operations in the English Channel just before, during, and after the D-Day invasion aboard an ocean-going tug, "a ship with no name." The memoir, written by the executive officer of ATR-3, tells compelling stories of the invasion, the operations of the ship, the sinking of the Leopoldville, and the long trek across the Atlantic back to the U.S. It's filled with beguiling characters, both Naval and civilian, as the mostly young people of the "greatest generation" confront the challenge of world war. This is a narrative that has guts and tells it like it was during those fear-filled days before the D-Day invasion. It describes men, for the most part, under extreme pressure and performing to the utmost to pull blown up LSTs or Destroyers to safety from Utah and Omaha Beaches.

About the Author:

Richard Hersey began his navy career as an apprentice seaman and retired as Commander. He served on the USS Mizar and ATR-3 during World War II and the USS Okanagan during the Korean War. He attended Boston University, University of California, Berkeley, and Golden Gate College majoring in accounting. He worked as an auditor when not on active duty. He worked for the Atomic Energy Commission, Federal Communication Commission, and the Department of Housing. He retired from government work after becoming Chief of Finance and Mortgage Credit, HUD, in the San Francisco area office. He’s still married to the bride he met in New York City after the ship-with-no-name sailed across the Atlantic Ocean in 1945.
