Stories of the navy. During the past three years of war no day has passed that did not bring its own Tales of the Navy ; stories of selfless heroism, of dogged effort and fine seamanship. Many of the stories have been given to the world, and many more must be withheld until long after the fighting ceases, but there is one story that started in September, 1939, and has been going on ever since - a story of that continuous strain which is endured by every man who sails the seas in time of war. 223pp. Advertisements. Size: 8vo Crown (7½" x 5") Dust wrapper in protective, removable sleeve.
