A Native American, Harman Wolf, is a Navy Destroyer Commander, fighting in the Pacific Theatre. His aggressive tactics brought him to the attention of Adm. William F. Halsey who promotes Wolf. He becomes the de facto commodore of a division of destroyers fighting the naval battle around Guadalcanal. The author describes Wolf’s command of his ship and his division as he develops tactics to combat the Japanese.
The story is a historical fiction but I wonder if the author took some of the experiences and tactics of some real-life U.S. Navy destroyer captains such as Arleigh Burke, Ernest Evans and Frederick Moosbrugger. I have read their biographies and find similarities to battles and tactics in Deutermann’s story. The book is well written and meticulously researched. The story might be fiction but it is historically accurate. Deutermann has great descriptions of naval battles that are very realistic and easy to read.
P.T. Deutermann retired from the navy after 26 years as a Captain. He is also the son of Admiral H. T. Deutermann. As in a typical military family both his son and daughter are Naval Officers. After retirement, he began his writing career.
Dick Hill does an excellent job narrating the book. Hill is a multi-award winning audiobook narrator and also won the Golden Voice award.
