This is one of Deutermann's early works, and not one of his best. This is a book about naval operations during the time of the Vietnam war. If you like intricate, very intricate, technical details about ships electronics and propulsion , then you might like it. I found it over the top in that regard. It is also a nightmare of alphabet soup acronyms, and lots of naval jargon. Does Deutermann really expect us all to know what CFNC, PIRAZ, FSTF, EEBD, TACAN, COPO, FCSC and a host of other, unexplained things are ? There is a 5-page glossary at the back which you have to constantly refer to, but many remain unexplained. At 615 pages with small print, it is long, way too long, and could have been 200 pages shorter if much of technical overkill was left out. It has a long drawn-out conclusion, and a generally unsatisfactory ending.
