Part of the new audiobook series Now Hear This, Battleship Sailor offers the memoir of radioman Mason aboard the USS California during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. While Mason delivers a front-row account of his harrowing experiences during the raid, he also provides a social and cultural view of his life in the Navy. Richard Rohan is believable as the author's voice, relating in an orderly account his life aboard ship and on shore. Rohan is expressive without overdramatizing, reflecting Mason's recollections of his buddies, the shore leaves, and the nightlife in port. The small details will strike a chord with many listeners. There iscertainly an audience that is likely to be enthusiastic about this and other personal accounts presented in the Naval Institute Press audiobooks.
