You and I are the same age (I'm a tad older at 53), and I LOVED Robb White books (though I went in the AF for 29 years vs. the Navy). Especially liked Flight Deck and Silent Ship, Silent Sea. Wonderful books that could be had from the Scholastic Book Club when I was in elementary school. Somehow, I suspect these types of books are not being offered to today's generation of young 'uns-- Americans were portrayed in those books as the "good guys", and unfortunately, that concept appears politically incorrect these days...again-- GREAT books and a GREAT author!
