About this title


An account of the tremendous losses suffered by the American Merchant Marine during the war, identifying those ships flying under the American flag (including Philippine vessels) that the Coast Guard and the Navy documented as receiving damage or being lost through some action of the enemy, as well as the attendant circumstances of their loss. Browning uses the Coast Guard's determination of a war casualty, rather than the Navy's Survivors Statements, to define the entries. Includes an appended listing of poorly documented losses, and a glossary. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
