From the cover: “For Away All Boats tells the intimate and heroic life of an attack transport, U.S.S. Belinda. It tells of the ships and men that went in under naval bombardment, which landed the marines in battle, which took them, wounded and dying off the blasted beaches at Makin Island, Kwajalein, Saipan, and Lingayen Gulf. At first BeIinda was mere machinery. But the sea swells tempered her, the men breathed life into her; the training exercises galvanized her men into a crew.”
