Sailors to the End: The Deadly Fire on the USS Forrestal & the Heroes Who Fought It
Gregory A. Freeman (au). An account of the heroic sailors who survived one of the worst accidents in U.S. naval history. Tells the story of the 1967 fire on board the USS Forrestal off the coast of Vietnam. The aircraft carrier was preparing to launch attacks into N. Vietnam when one of its jets accidentally fired a rocket across the flight deck & into an aircraft occupied by pilot John McCain. A huge fire ensued, & McCain barely escaped before a thousand-pound bomb on his plane exploded, causing a chain reaction. The crew struggled for days to extinguish the fires that nearly destroyed the ship & took the lives of 134 men. Provides evidence that the U.S. gov’t. compromised the ship’s safety by insisting on increased bombing despite the shortage of reliable weapons. B&W photos.
