Read full description of the books:
An interesting account of the manipulations and mistakes that lead to the command of a U.S. destroyer off the coast of Vietnam during the Vietnam War by a mentally ill, fantasy-addled, and dishonest officer who practically drove his crew to madness and near mutiny during his short three-month tour as captain, and then an account of how he attempted (and to me, failed) to exonerate himself. Here is some insight into the politics of the Navy during this era as well as some indictment of the system that destroys lives in order to protect the system rather than actively weeding out troubled officers. A good read, by a respected journalist.
