A series of stories of the war experiences of a Navy Chaplain originally published in The Chicago Tribune are brought together in this volume. This is the story of a battleship, the ""South Dakota,"" and her adventures in the Pacific and in the Atlantic. But there is much human interest here for every reader. While those who have boys in the Navy will find an interesting account of how those boys live, and how they fight, what their problems are and how they are met. Those who wonder what sort of functions a Chaplain performs will find their questions answered out of the vivid experiences of one Padre.
