KIRKUS REVIEW

The story of the Seabees in the panoply of war -- the men who fought with hammers, nails, girders and picks, and paid with sweat, toil, and life. This gives a panorama of their monumental engineering feats on the D-days at island after island. In many instances for the first time the author reveals details of the part the Seabees played in amphibious landings. There are flashes of earthy, raucous humor -- and contagious enthusiasm. Follow up of Can Do! which dealt with the Seabees in Normandy invasion.
