Down to the Sea by Bruce Henderson
Book DescriptionThis epic story opens at the hour the Greatest Generation went to war on December 7, 1941, and follows four U.S. Navy ships and their crews in the Pacific until their day of reckoning three years later with a far different enemy: a deadly typhoon. In December 1944, while supporting General MacArthur's invasion of the Philippines, Admiral William "Bull" Halsey neglected the Law of Storms, placing the mighty U.S. Third Fleet in harm's way. Drawing on extensive interviews with nearly every living survivor and rescuer, as well as many families of lost sailors, transcripts and other records from naval courts of inquiry, ships' logs, personal letters, and diaries, Bruce Henderson finds some of the story's truest heroes exhibiting selflessness, courage, and even defiance.

Ron Mallett was just 10 when his father died suddenly. Devastated, he found solace in the science fiction of HG Wells, believing that if he could build a time machine, he could go back into the past, warn his father and perhaps save his life. This book presents the story of his journey of self and scientific discovery.
