Crossing the Line: A Blue Jacket's World War II Odyssey

Kernan, Alvin
1994 hardback with dj - ex library copy

"This worthwhile World War II autobiography is the memoirs of a Wyoming ranch boy who joined the navy in 1941 to get away from rural poverty. He began the war aboard the carrier Enterprise on the day Pearl Harbor was attacked and ended it aboard an escort carrier off Japan. His experiences in between included many demanding missions as an aerial gunner, having to abandon the sinking U. S. S. Hornet, and other episodes with different flavors, such as shore patrol duty, visits to prostitutes, and winning a grubstake for college after the war in a poker game.
