An excellent and relevant factual basis about the early and not so glorious days of the US Navy in the Pacific. Some excellent characters and lots of action turn this bit of history into a very good story. Looking forward to the rest of the series. ( )

As the war in the South Pacific heats up, Lieutenant Todd ingram gets a new assignment to the destroyer U.S. Howell, on which he will serve as executive officer.
