it was amazing
bookshelves: 11th-grade-shelf

The book initates with the death of a Captain named McVay who was driven to such point due to accusation in the Navy and critisize by others of relatives whose loved ones die. It then goes on to the point in which it told about a disaster which was not recorded in history in the point of the survivors.
The story was extremely moving becuase the Captain and the soldiers of the ship were ignored by the Navy of their rescue message which cause more than half the crew to perish after a ship they were aboard was torpedoed by the Japanese. This indicates there is injustice in the military in which those higher up do not get blamed. I felt shocked because the military covered information to put the blame on someone else
