Anecdotes and Sea Stories: An American Century Sailor, Midshipman and Officer
by Rear Admiral Eugene Harrison Farrell USN (Retired)



>>>DOWNLOAD BOOK Anecdotes and Sea Stories: An American Century Sailor, Midshipman and Officer



The 26 independent episodes of <EM>Anecdotes and Sea Stories</EM> revolve around the life of Rear Admiral Eugene Harrison Farrell, USN (Retired), and narrate the true events that revived America's sea power, catapulted her from 19th Century isolation into the status of a world power and enabled her victories of WWII in the Pacific. In addition, they illuminate President FDR's reluctance to heed the advice of his trusted commander of the Pacific Fleet that intended to prevent the tragic defeat of Pearl Harbor. By contrast, the final episode reveals another president heeding the advice of his senior military officer on how to end the Vietnam War. Others expose the culture, humor and discipline of a typical 20th Century Navy warrant officer.<BR><BR>Features a 12-page photo insert, Glossary of Naval Terminology, and Large Font Type.
