Thorough description of the life of a commercial sailo
Reviewed in the United States on March 14, 2019
This book is well written; describing the life of a 3rd mate of commercial shipping. The author did a good job of describing his life over the period of time he went through the Maritime Academy and first 2 or 3 years of his career. Although a bit bland, compared to books written by captains of submarines, pilots of fighter planes or commanders of wartime military units, I learned many facts about the operations of large commercial tankers and other container ships.
