Davidson's voice creates excitement, sadness, disbelief, and rebuke in his telling of a sea story of secrecy, suffering, survival, and sanctions following a torpedo attack on a U.S. cruiser during WWII. Memories of so many deaths woven into the narrative brings a chill to that hot July night near the Philippines. In a classic example of the military's eternal inability to deal with its own mistakes, authorities blame the captain of the sunken ship for the accident. The author and the reader dramatize the Navy's subsequent legal maneuvers, orchestrated to convict a scapegoat. When it was first published, this book was the first of several on the sinking. J.A.H.
