Navy Gun Crew is a firsthand look at a unit assigned to a merchant marine ship in the Atlantic during World War 2. The book examines the crew’s training, dockside duties, life at sea, encounters with submarines and aircraft, and a severe Atlantic storm. It provides insight into a little-known yet vital part of the wartime effort to keep supplies flowing from the United States to Great Britain.
