This is the story of the intimate and heroic life of an attack transport ship, the USS Belinda. It tells of the ships and men that went in under naval bombardment, that landed the marines in battle, that took them wounded and dying of the blasted beached at Makin Island, Kwajalein, Saipan, and Lingayen Gulf. It is the Pacific War created in its entirety, from the shakedown cruise to the bitter engagements in the Marshalls and Marianas. It joins the classic ranks of ‘The Cruel Sea’ and ‘The Caine Mutiny’. It is a fascinating story of courage, and bravery, in the face of terrible odds.
