South to Java by William P Mack ( Recording )
1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The USS O'Leary was a rusty, aging four-stack destroyer, rushed into service in 1918. Now, in 1941, it is badly in need of an overhaul. Steaming through the blazing heat of the South Pacific, she is headed for a showdown in the South Java Sea. The O'Leary and her 120-man crew are fictitious, the Battle of the Java Sea and the American ships and sailors who perished in it are not. The real life experiences of the authors--Admiral William P. Mack Sr., an old "China hand," who fought with the Asiatic fleet, and his son, William P. Mack Jr., a destroyer officer--infuses this novel with authenticity
