To experience modern naval life to its fullest, one should serve on a destroyer; this fact is attested to both by this reviewer's own experience and Mack's follow-up novel to South to Java (Nautical & Aviation Pub., 1987). Mack (Vice Admiral, U.S. Navy, Ret.) provides an up close and personal tale of the Battle for the Atlantic (1940-44) aboard the aging, flush-deck, four-stack destroyer U.S.S. O'Leary . Using central character Executive Officer Lieutenant Alden Sorenson and supporting characters, both officers and enlisted, Mack effectively transports readers back to this crucial battle when Britain and Russia's survival depended upon men and ships such as those depicted with fascinating detail here. General readers and sea fiction enthusiasts demanding technical detail with historic accuracy will read this novel in hopes of future Mack novels. Highly recommended.
