    1. Thoroughly enjoyed this account of World War II destroyer life during the Guadalcanal campaign, written by a destroyer captain just a few months after leaving his ship Since it was published during the war, most names of ships and places have been disguised or blanked out though it s easy to trace them now with plenty of records and histories available the G is the USS Grayson , and the tactical aspects of campaigns are not discussed One also senses a bit of wartime attitude in the gung ho, let [...]


    2. Great book What an excellent narrative in destroyer tacticsa must read for those who would like some insight on Tin Can operations


    3. Blast from the PastThis is a true account of six months aboard a US navy destroyer during the first year of WW II The action takes place in the Pacific, around Guadalcanal It was written in 1943, fresh off the experience and with the war not yet won The author, captain of the ship, has an interesting, breezy style of writing that well conveyed what life on a destroyer was like It creates the atmosphere well and transports one back to that time and place A fascinating read.


    4. Excellent,Excellent how many times can I say it.A well written book that flows from chapter to chapter The authors gift of placing you in the action on board the Navy ship is extroantary.I really enjoyed this book very much I felt sorry for him when he lost all his friends during and finally at the end of the war.I was a very young man during the war, but even so I can still remember some of the high lights that reminds me of things that took place at that time.


    5. I was very disappointed, I expected stories of action and sea battles What I received was a lot fluff about the ship and the various sections of the ship taking up 60% of the book The names of this mans friends are nice for him to remember but relevance do they have to the battles that were taking place and the heroes that lost their lives sailing the ships.


    6. The Smallest Battleship sBeing partial to destroyers myself, and having lived aboard one for a large portion of my stint in the Navy, I found this book to be one that accurately described what it was like to be in the Tin Can Navy The duty was hard, but there was a feeling of camaraderie that I don t think could be matched on any other man o war in the Navy.


    7. Unusual in its daily insights into life aboard destroyer during this period.Written from The experiences of a destroyer captain it describes the day to day life during this period Rather than the story of great battles and struggle it gives insights into the tedium life aboard a is navy destroyer interesting reading.


    8. This is a great first person account of the war in the South Pacific from the US point of view Accept that because this was written during the war, some details had to be left out and there was a certain amount of cheerleading going on Still, a very good read.


    9. A really enjoyable book on what it was like to serve on a Destroyer during the Pacific War of World War 2 I really enjoyed and it was very insightful so often we get books on Carriers or land battles but not the workforce of the Navy.


    10. This is an excellent read for anyone intrested in knowing what it was like fighting in the Pacific during WWII this author was chief staff on a destroyer and gives a very broad lens view with a good, engaging style.


    11. Very interesting readGood detail about life aboard a destroyer in WWII Stories about the officers and crew detailed and, at times funny, heart wrenching and deadly serious Jumps around a bit, but overall I would highly recommend.


    12. Early days of World War2Realistic writing Meant a lot to me since my dad was aboard the Uss Holland He talked a lot about the great time he had in z Australia


    13. A great telling of life on a destroyer in WWII Makes me want to go out and buy a model of one and build it.


    14. You really gotta read this.Very good book I really enjoyed reading this book I m not usually up for reading a diary, but this was very good.


    15. Entertaining and historicalA good and fairly detailed journal of a destroyer captain in WW II Pacific theater Contains numerous accounts of action around Guadalcanal.


    16. Pretty goodSlow in parts Lack of action stories caused this book to drag a bit Not to bad otherwise.Does give insight to life on a destroyer in WW2.


    17. Excellently toldEnjoyable Brought me back to my days haze grey and underway Was on board two FFGs and could relate to a lot in this book.


    18. destroyersit was interesting to read what happens on a ship during war time, not as frantic as the Marines on the beaches but another part of the greatest fighting machine the United States Armed Forces.


    19. Really informative.Exciting beginning till end Liked all the great scenes and action I really like war and the Navy they had a tough one.
