Sailors to the End tells the dramatic story of the 1967 fire on board the USS Forrestal during its time at Yankee Station off the coast of Vietnam. The aircraft carrier, the mightiest of the U.S. fleet, was preparing to launch attacks into North Vietnam when one of its jets accidentally fired a rocket into an aircraft occupied by pilot John McCain. A huge fire ensued, causing 1,000 lb. bombs to explode prematurely and spread the blaze throughout the ship. Almost all of the crew were innocent eighteen-and nineteen-year-olds, but in an instant they were thrust into a tragedy that nearly destroyed the ship and took the fives of 134 men.
Written with the intensity and excitement of a thriller, and based on never-before-disclosed information and extensive interviews with the fire's survivors, here is the first full account of the disaster. Focusing on the fateful fire and its aftermath, this book provides a gripping tale of heartache and heroism as young men find themselves trapped on a burning ship with bombs exploding A around them.Performed by Kevin Conway
