KIRKUS REVIEW

Doctoring and the war as an excuse for further battling of the sexes as Rick, crack surgeon and a wolf with the ladies, has opportunity for all kinds of activities on a troopship to Africa --and after. A night of love, before they sailed, during a blackout in England leaves Rick unsure of who his participant was; he wants to find her again, and his candidates include Carolyn, chaste nurse, Linda, international correspondent, and Gina, another nurse. He decides to marry Carolyn -- then falls in love with Linda -- and Carolyn makes way for her. Intermittently there are torpedoings, life aboard ship, heavy action during landings, and Rick performing well throughout. Straight rental tripe -- with moments of luscious lusting which may not sit well with P L's.
