First edition, 8vo, pp. xii, 236; black and white photographic portrait frontispiece, illustrations throughout; original cloth in attractive blue pictorial dust jacket; light jacket edge wear, else very good. Influenced by the belief that "each man on his ship.be informed of every major action on this historic expedition [to the shores of Sicily]," Kirk appointed as "Bridge Announcer" to the flagship "Spelvin," Lieutenant John Mason Brown, whose position is rather closely related to today's "sportcaster." "Lieutenant Brown's duty was to broadcast over the ship's loud-speaker system play-by-play accounts to the men below"; this is the compilation of the notes taken from Brown's broadcasts.
