“This is a book that will keep you guessing. I hated to see it end”Amazon review for “All along the Watchtower”
“My dad received a purple heart for injuries during the second kamikaze attack on the Cassin Young. He would never discuss his time aboard this ship or anything about the war. He died in 2003, taking all his stories with him. I was thrilled to find this book telling what his life was like aboard this ship for 3 years during WWII. Even though so much of it brought me to tears, the information and stories here helped me to a better understanding of who my dad was and brought me a new respect for this father who was rarely there.”Amazon review of USS Cassin Young
