In 1972, the United States was embroiled in an unpopular war in Vietnam, and the USS  Kitty Hawk  was headed to the gulf of Tonkin. Its five thousand men, cooped up for the longest at-sea tour of the war rioted'”or, as this book suggests, mutinied. By the time order was restored, careers were in tatters. With action pulled straight from a high seas thriller, Gregory A. Freeman uses eyewitness accounts and a careful and unprecidented examination of the Navy's records to refute the official story of the incident, make a convincing case for the U.S. Navy's first mutiny, and shed light on this seminal event in American history.
