    One thought on “South to Java”

    1. A WWII US Navy destroyer and their exploits at the beginning of the war in the Pacific. Gave it 4 stars. Good sea tail.

    2. When the authors stuck to what they knew--the Asiatic Fleet of yore and its old ships, this was an interesting narrative of a time and place in American history pretty much forgotten. It was kind of a continuation of "The Sand Pebbles" in that regard.

    3. A love of mine for some time has been the Southwest Pacific and the campaign fought there. I was first turned on to this area when I read The Fleet the Gods Forgot and The Ghost that Died at Sunda Straits. Merging this with a love of flush decks and four stacks (no, I don’t know what it is about these destroyers I love other than they did what they shouldn’t have) made getting this book a must. While the story itself is fictional (the ship and the crew), the scene being played against and th [...]

    4. Mack and Mack Jr. are no Herman Wouk or James Michener- however, they do serve up a solidly satisfying novel about the first days of World War II on the "Asiatic Station". I couldn't find much background information about Mack Sr but it does seem like he used his own experiences as a destroyer officer (who participated in the same battles enumerated in the book) as the basis for the main protagonist and plot strands in the book. His anger at the incompetence Douglas McArthur and his staff are pa [...]
