KIRKUS REVIEW

Again the Merchant Navy (see below, report on MY NAME IS FRANK), -- in greater factual detail and with less emotional tug than the other book. Short history of England's power, the First World War and marine development, the submarine, the factors of this war, Hitler's magnetized mines, the convoy system, etc. Tales of boats and exploits; reports by officers of the merchant navy, valor, courage, everyday heroism rising above more pamphleteering.
