The inspiring story of the USS Aaron Ward, destroyer/minesweeper DM34 during the battle of Okinawa. As explained, the book as written is laid out in "watches", following the ships log - details supplied by surviving crewmen and witnesses to the events.

A too typical story of small ships manned by everyday Americans, brave men with big courage and hearts to match doing what had to be done.
