    The book was great, especially for someone who served on an ocean going minesweeper. However, there were some errors when reference was made to the USS Exploit MSO 440 and her trip to Haiti. My husband was aboard her on that trip. Should his account of the cruise be requested, he can be reached at: [email protected]

    This is a great book, especially for sailors who served on minesweepers. It is well written and is very accurate. It gives the reader a sense of what is was like on an ocean going minesweeper (MSO). I spent two years on one in 1968-69. It was a pleasure to read and will be a great reference source.

    My husband served on one of the ships written about in this book. Gave me insight into his naval experiences.

    Best book encountered about the MSO type mine warfare ships. Their entire history is well researched and clearly presented.
