A Very Good Read
A very interesting book on the USS Marblehead, an elderly light cruiser assigned to the Asiatic Fleet when Pearl Harbor was attacked, and how the ship operated in those initial months when the Japanese were running amok in Southeast Asia. Well worth the read for the marvelous depictions of the various crew members, both in and out of combat.
