On Yankee Station by John B. Nichols and Barrett Tillman
This was purchased as a reference book. I was writing a story set during the Vietnam War. The story is one of those hidden in the closet and destined to remain so.
The reference book, however, clarified a great many questions and pre-conceived notions I had developed about life on a US Aircraft Carrier during those tumultuous years.
Clear explanations of military jargon assist the civilian reader. If you are looking for an interesting read dedicated to the navy role in the Vietnam conflict — I highly recommend this slim volume. It also has photos.
