Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0688079539, Paperback)

In every theater and across every ocean, World War Two's naval battles raged ceaselessly. For those who served shipboard, danger lurked 24 hours a day from increasingly lethal weapons borne by planes in the skies above and other boats and subs in the water. More than at any other time in history, a sailor could never let down his guard, and his endurance was constantly tested by danger. Through a brilliant mixture of narrative history and personal accounts--collected over almost 30 years of interviewing combatants from both sides--a very powerful, human story emerges of the danger, elation, and miseries of six years of "the longest battle" in the war.
