Six stars. I am surprised Ringel was an Air Force captain; I totally expected him to be a USN lieutenant. The book has captured the operation of a naval vessel in intricate detail, and described grueling battles in intricate detail. And instead of like in an idiotic Arnold Swarzenegger movie where he always wins against incredible odds, and nobody dies, Ringel realistically has heart rending casualties in the story. And, of course, in true military fashion, he includes face-palming military stupidity, without which the book would be incredibly lacking.

Important true life account of the experiences of a Jewish girl growing up during WWII and being sent to the camp. My pops fought in the south pacific, and never fought against the Germans but it still hits me where it hurts. Must read for the idiots who claim the holocaust never happened.
