Description

World War 2 was a terrible period in world history. The outcome was far from certain. Navy destroyers were vital to our survival. This is the carefully researched story of the destroyer USS Murphy DD603, as told by a member of the crew. The Murphy, showing her shamrock, was active in the invasions of French Morocco, Sicily, Omaha Beach, Normandy, and South France. She transported King Ibn Saud of Saudi Arabia to meet President Franklin D. Roosevelt on Great Bitter Lake, Egypt. At the end of the war she led a hospital ship into Nagasaki Harbor to pick up Allied prisoners of war. She was cut in two, but refused to die. The author lists the names of every man who ever served on the Murphy.
