Review by: Donald Hofmockel on April 05, 2012 :
I really enjoyed this book about Capt Kelly by his daughter.
Capt Kelly was the father of the SOSUS project that I worked on from 1954 to 1976 at Bell Labs. He always showed respect for the work of the Labs folks and that respect was reciprocated. The people of the USA should be thankful and proud of the ASW efforts of the Navy and the Bell Labs and Western Electrick people who worked on Caesar, Jezibel and SOSUS. This book shows the love of Capt Kelly from his family of which I was not aware. Thank you, Mary Jo, for this book.
