One sailor’s experience at sea affirms the courage and brotherhood of Navy men.

There seems to be no shortage of books written by war veterans. Indeed, there are as many experiences (and perspectives) as combatants in many battlefields in different theaters of war. Most war memoirs have been written by veterans who fought on land, but there is one by Dolph Brostrom, a sailor who help build a secret ship repair base in the South Pacific and recounts vivid memories of some amazing tasks that were accomplished there.
One Sailor’s Journey: Tales from World War II (Bridge Stream Publishers, 2014) proves to be a pleasant and joyful read for people who have enough of the blood, corpses, and other grim realities of war found in many war memoirs. The author, however, shares the sense of brotherhood and patriotism that united men and women from the many cultures and walks of life that make up the great American melting pot.
Though miles away from the bloodshed that took over Europe and the Far East, the author and his shipmates had more than their fair share of struggles. The war did not only bring out the best in them but also portrays a glimpse of life during the Great Depression, which shaped the character of “The Great Generation.”
“One Sailor’s Journey” is not just a story of one man but many brave men and women.  The book attests to the brotherhood among sailors – and of the courage and determination of patriots who crossed the seas to defend their country against the enemy.
