A paint fresh seaman second class straight out of Boot Camp, Kelsey had been assigned to the destroyer Caron through an administrative slip up. He was supposed to be at Officer Candidate School in Rhode Island, n ot in the middle of an invasion force in the Solomon Islands. So when a Japanese plane slammed into the Caron's hull sending flames roaring out over the deck Kelsey did the only logical thing he could think of. He yelled Abandon Ship and leaped overboard. Back on ship the fires now extinguished Kelsey found himself in deep double and during the long agonizing weeks ahead as the crippled Caron drifted through a thousand miles of enemy controlled ocean, he discovered that he had a lot to learn about the Navy and about the Caron's young captain who was fighting desperately to save his first command. Here is an explosive and authentic World War II novel." Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Standard Weight. Category: Fiction; Inventory No: 130171.
