KennedyIn the early morning darkness of August 2, 1943, in the waters of Blackett Strait in the Solomon Islands, the Japanese destroyer Amagiri sliced an American PT boat in two, leaving its crew for dead in a flaming sea.

Over the next three days, the boats skipper, a boyish lieutenant from Boston named John Fitzgerald Kennedy, repeatedly risked his life in an effort to summon help until he finally secured his crews rescue.First published to wide critical acclaim in 1961, Robert Donovans timeless classic tells the complete, harrowing story of PT 109 and her crew. This 40th anniversary edition includes a foreword from Daniel Schorr, a preface by the author recounting the circumstances of the books creation, and an afterword by World War II naval historian Duane Hove portraying the broader context for PT boat operations in the South Pacific.

Here for a new generation of readers is a compelling glimpse of the values of service and duty that characterized America during the war years, as fresh and timely now as when it was published forty years ago.
