KIRKUS REVIEW

Covering essentially the same material as the Messner biography reviewed above, this text assumes a more mature, though no less interesting attitude. Less attempt is made to fill in the detailed personal reactions of the Admiral, particularly in those more personal aspects of his life, but the narrative of this somewhat shorter biography is swift, informative, and engrossing. For the reader with a more factual, more masculine, and adult interest in the subject, this biography is recommended.
