Review:

This is how I remember my time in the Fleet - stories, people, incidents. A navy has ships, but men bring those ships to life. Service in the Navy is exciting, hard, funny, boring, and many other things best told by the men who were there. Give this book to someone who may join the Navy, and they'll get a better picture of shipboard life than from any recruiter. Give this to someone who's been in the Navy, his eyes will get misty, and then he'll start telling his own stories. And of course, these stories are all absolutely true. -- --Larry Bond, author of Red Phoenix, Dangerous Ground and The Mighty Fallen

The proudest Marine and the toughest SEAL will tell you, ... destroyers? Now, there's the REAL Navy. Find out why in the pages of Scurvy Dogs, Green Water and Gunsmoke written by the true men of destroyers; those greyhounds of the sea; those TIN CAN SAILORS. -- --John J. Gobbell, author of The Brutus Lie, The Last Lieutenant and A Code For Tomorrow
