KIRKUS REVIEW

We can think of no boy who would not jump at this baldly simple record of Motor Torpedo Boat Squadron 3 in the Philippine campaign. He gives the men's own story, particularly Kelly's. The story of Bataan and Corregidor, the taking off of MacArthur and Quezon, the sinking of a Jap cruiser, of bravery, escapes, anger, despair, and a powerful will to see it through. An indictment of red tape, this is a Book-of-the-Month selection, which should have wide distribution.
