BB-39 is a story about a group of five young men, part of the Greatest Generation, who join the US Navy in 1938. It chronicles their lives in the prewar battleship navy and beyond. Events out of their control fracture their friendship, their loves, and their lives. Forged into men by a conflict greater then themselves, the survivors of December 7 and those they love move in divergent paths. In 1990 an accident near the Wailing Wall in Israel starts another chain of events that brings redemption, a twilight lovers reunion, and a Siberian POW rescue.

Thought it was non-fiction at first
It is a good story although I didn't need to hear quite so much about their sex lives lol ..........
The interactions both in and out of the Navy
Even if you are a non-fiction guy like me I think you will enjoy this one. I wish it had more detail about their actual duties in the Navy day to day.
