South to JavaWWII: The crew of an old U.S. Navy four-piper destroyer O'Leary, with a suicidal captain, and a disgruntled Lieutenant Fraser, it must weather the initial Japanese onslaught. It is steaming toward a deadly battle in the Java Sea which is the focus of this famous novel set at the outbreak of World War II as the Allies attempted to defend the Philippines and Dutch East Indies against superior Japanese forces. Thrust into conflict against the highly trained modern navy, the American sailors often had only their own courage with which to meet the enemy.
