In these brief and powerful poems dedicated to eighty-eight men of the United States Navy-ranging from lads in their teens to grizzled veterans up to the rank of Rear Admiral-who lost their lives in the Second World War, the author has composed an indictment of the futility of war and a lasting tribute to heroes who did not know they were heroes. Each poem is written in the first person, from the point of view of the man being written about, and in each we get to know something about his life, his attitude, and the manner of his death.
