Короткое описание книги

From the bestselling author ofThe Man in the Gray Flannel Suit, a World War II novel that is as thrilling as it is true to life Hoping to draw a nice, lengthy shore duty after two years at sea, Lieutenant Barton is instead told that he is being sent right back out, this time as captain of a supply ship sailing from California to New Guinea and stopping at every small island in between.

Homesick for his wife, he has no choice but to accept the assignment and a crew of twenty-six landlubbers whose last names all begin withW.

Their first load of cargo? Pineapples destined for Hawaii.

Life aboard the one-hundred-eighty-footSV-126is never dull.

When Barton isn't battling gale-force winds and monstrous waves, he is coping with seasick sailors and budding rivalries that threaten to turn mutinous.

Hanging over the ship like a storm cloud is the knowledge that the world is at war and the enemy is never far away.

Whether Lieutenant Barton and his crew are fighting torpedoes and typhoons or writing letters to loved ones,Voyage to Somewhereoffers a unique and page-turning perspective on what the Second World War was really like.
