The story of World War II in the Pacific as seen through the eyes of teen-age sailors aboard the U.S.S. Saufley, one of the most highly decorated destroyers of the war. "EJ" takes the reader on a first-person tour of the "Old Navy"-from boot camp in Norfolk to his first tour of duty aboard the U.S.S. Washington, through the early months of war in the Atlantic to a disagreement over liberty policy leading to the brig, and finally to the Saufley in the Pacific through the end of the war. With its unusual perspective on history and colorful view of men at war, Tin Can Man is an impressive contribution to WW II literature. Complete with maps and photographs, it is a must for historians, WW II veterans, and naval enthusiasts.
