As a Navy veteran...I enjoyed this book and appreciated its authenticity and its thoroughly delightful plot...having known some skippers that nearly fit the author's description. A friend of mine recently wrote to Mr. Wouk with some insightful comments and questions and received coments from the author.

"The Caine Mutiny" is among the great World War II novels. The characters are diverse and well developed, the storyline riveting and you come away with a new understanding of life in the armed forces, the stress of war, and the culture of the men who "go down to the sea in ships". I highly recommend this book.

Fascinating work. Not at all the dry war novel I expected. The construction is perhaps different from anything I've encountered. Never before have I felt such a sense of being manipulated by an author...the reader's perception is shaded gently in different directions throughout the book. What seems right in one chapter may seem horribly wrong in the next, but the shift is seamless. Brilliantly written.

Great book. According to my Dad who served in the Navy in WW2 (in the Pacific)this book does a great job of describing life at sea during the war.
