Description
The 110-foot U.S. patrol boat SC-761 was part of the "Splinter Fleet" in World War II—small American fighting ships made of wood, which sailed into harm's way against much larger Japanese warships. The SC-761 participated in the island-hopping campaign of the Solomon Islands, fighting off attacks from enemy planes, protecting convoys from submarine attack, and enduring the fury of South Pacific cyclones, and earned personal commendation from task force commander Rear Admiral T.S. Wilkinson. Henry Doscher was assigned as executive officer aboard the SC-761 in January 1943 and soon became her commander; his memoir tells the story of a very small ship in a very big war.
