KIRKUS REVIEW

Grand tribute to the heroism of the officers and crew of the Mercantile Marine in a story of the oiler San Demetrio, one of the convoy conducted by Jervia Bay. Shelled and set on fire by the Admiral Sheer, the vessel was abandoned. Two days later, a of her survivors boarded her and effected sufficient repairs to bring her back to port with her ""pool petrol"" nearly intact. The plan of the ship and the roster of the men give a rounded aspect to the record, and the whole account loses nothing of the drama and epic quality of the stirring event. Plus sale small item.
