"Kenneth Goldman's father, Lieutenant Robert W. Goldman, USNR, joined the "Lucky Chuck" crew after Operation Torch, the invasion of North Africa. As a junior officer, he held a high security clearance and saved a large portion of the documents to which he was privy. These invasion maps, photographs, ship's plans of the day, convoy position orders, enemy force assessments, and more form the backbone of this book, offering a seldom heard history from the lower decks." "Yet Goldman keeps his father out of center stage in telling the story of the "Lucky Chuck." Supplementing his father's weathered diaries and letters home with those of other crew members, he captures the boredom, combat fears, and humor shared by sailors aboard any ship at war."--book jacket." ;
