    Goddamn, an eyewitness account of Navy salvage divers that went in to Pearl Harbor after the bombing to recover the ships, and some other action in Guadalcanal. These guys wrote the first chapters of the salvage and damage control book - learned by trial and error mostly.

    It is written by Edward Raymer - I'll put him up there with Kittinger for having that modest awesomeness. I'm telling you, the shit our people did in WWII just never ceases to amaze me.
