Retired Navy commander Herb Kriloff recounts his days as the youngest officer assigned to the USS William B. Preston from 1939 to 1943. Readers travel with the young Naval Academy graduate to exotic locales like Oahu, the Dutch East Indies, and Manila as the "Willy B" and its daring crew patrol Japanese waters, survive an attack by enemy aircraft, and make a daring escape along the remote west coast of Australia. The author also retells of how he met, courted, and married a young English woman who had moved to Australia to escape the war. This classic tale retells in compelling detail a young man's coming of age and his advancement through the ranks as he learns real-world lessons no Annapolis classroom could ever impart.
