AT WAR AT SEA Sailors and Naval Combat in the Twentieth Century

by | Read by Robert O'Keefe

History • 20.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

Unlike most books on naval warfare, which deal with the strategy and tactics of ship movements, AT WAR AT SEA examines important social and psychological factors. Human elements such as diet, pilot indoctrination, disaster training, fatigue, and ethnic background have affected the outcome of great sea battles as much as brilliant maneuvers. Our understanding of how Japan's unique culture produced its desperate kamikaze pilots relates to today's phenomenon of suicide bombers killing themselves in terrorist attacks. Robert O'Keefe's tenor voice and his mastery of the many languages that pop up combine to make a valuable listening experience for all lovers of history and the sea. J.A.H.
