ANNAPOLIS Gangway to the Quarterdeck

Email this review


Capt. Puleston, 'Puley' to us, taught me seamanship at the Academy. I've cruised with him and had the pleasure of reviewing his grand book on Makan a few years ago. Now back on active duty, I affectionately salute an old shipmate and fellow alumnus who has added another fine volume to the History of our Gangway to the Quarterdeck, his and mine. (A prejudiced review, written by a friend of the author's about a place he is very fond of, but nevertheless a book he is going to buy.)"" -- Probably the last review -- until after the war -- which we shall get from our ex-nautical expert, who says that -- officially -- he must now be anonymous...The publishers promise wide coverage in all naval mediums, as well as in the Times and Herald Tribune. Circular, along with other books of interest to the Army and Navy.
