My Thoughts:

We’ve all read about WWII in text books for school. This book is a true honest description of what life was like for one young Merchant Marine. The author published real letters his father wrote home to his parents during his time enlisted from 1944 to 1946.

War is always more intense than we know about. The military see and experience things that we can not even begin to comprehend. This book only gives you a small glimpse into the horror of war.
