178 pp, 8vo (9" H). "In 36 moths of sea duty as Radio Operator on five Merchant Marine ships, co-author Will Rayment encountered air bombings, typhoons and a tsunami while transporting volatile petroleum, munitions, landing craft, and troops. His tours on the Tanker 'Santa Cruz', the Liberty ships 'Gilbert M. Hitchcock' and 'Albert A. Robinson', the Refrigeration ship 'Grommet Reefer', and the Victory ship 'Fenn Victory' - along with his fellow seamen - were part of the contribution to America's war effort by much-overlooked and unsung heroes. The men of the Merchant Marine, and the U.S. Navy Armed Guard that accompanied them, endured extreme danger and hardship in their efforts to protect America's freedoms. Some 733 Merchant ships were sunk in the attempts to deliver America's war supplies for Allied troops. (This book) is a historically based tale of an unheralded part of World War II that needs to be remembered." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor edgewear.
