Synopsis: This sailor's memoir leads from the U.S. Navy's peacetime "Pineapple Fleet" in Pearl Harbor to a secret convoy transporting the "Flying Tigers" to Asia. After the disaster at Pearl Harbor, his ship raids Japanese bases in the central Pacific. He watches Doolittle's bombers take off from the Hornet to bomb Tokyo, then proceeds to the carrier air battles of Midway and Santa Cruz. At Guadalcanal he is wounded when his ship sinks. From hospitals in New Zealand he moves to New Guinea, then to a destroyer at Okinawa, shooting at kamikazes. Post-war service in China and Japan round out his story.

Bill veteran, won a prize fellowship, and spent a year in South America with his bride, Claire Thompson. They wrote several articles for THE NEW YORK TIMES and VISION magazine. After returning to Harvard for an MBA degree, Jim worked as an industrial executive: for 13 years in Venezuela, 10 years in Mexico, and 10 years in Chicago. Then he retired. He and Claire live in Santa Rosa, California.
