A novel based on actual people and events
"In addition to other social experiments of the 1970s, some members of the American judiciary ... offered freshly convicted criminals the option of joining the U.S. armed forces, instead of serving their sentences. As a result, the U.S. Navy, among the other branches, was diluted with criminally and psychologically dangerous miscreants, to the detriment of the service, and thus the safety of the nation. ... Captain Yorel, YN3 Lain Byrd, and Seaman Apprentice Sam Ellis ... share a dedication to their country and their duty, in stark contrast to the criminal irresponsibility, endless intrigue, and other misbehavior of the Navy's new human flotsam."--Publisher's description
