Fatso is a petty officer in charge of a landing ship in the Medeteran Ocean running errands foe the US fleet. Along the way he and his crew have various adventures as the act as free spirits. An enjoyable, humorous read.

More Naval irreverence from my favorite flag officer. The further adventures of Boatswain's Mate First Class [for now] Fatso Gioninni. I reread everything Gallery published, both light and serious because it's worth my while.

One of the most hilarious books I've ever read! Definitely a fun read; I wish this book would get to be in much wider circulation.
