Summary
"In this action-packed narrative, Cling Johnson... brings alive the heroic story of how fast-moving destroyer-class ships--nicknamed "Tin Cans" or "Greyhounds"--fought submarines, escorted convoys, rescued sailors and airmen, shot down aircraft, provided offshore artillery support, and attacked armored battleships and cruisers without nothing more than a half-inch of steel separtating their crews from enemy fire and the dark waves of histile oceans."--
