Political and Military Statements in Support of the Thousands of Merchant Mariners Including Those We Honor in This Book Braving the Wartime Seas “The Academy serves the Merchant Marine as West Point serves the Army and Annapolis serves the Navy . . .” (September 30, 1943, dedication of USMMA campus) President Franklin D. Roosevelt “The only thing that ever really frightened me during the war was the U-boat peril.” Prime Minister Winston S. Churchill “This is a hundredth gone. Too damned many of these fine lads gone. Wish there was more we could do to minimize losses.” Captain Richard R. McNulty, June 16, 1943 Note on report of death of a Cadet-Midshipman “They have brought us our lifeblood and they had paid for it with some of their own . . . they have delivered their cargoes to us who needed them so badly. In war it is performance that counts.” Quotes from Douglas MacArthur, General of the U.S. Army “Yours was the first front on every ocean, and without you, no Army and Navy can survive . . . one of the vital teams participating will be recognized as the merchant seamen in dungarees . . . we of the Navy will salute you with a final ‘Well done’.” Admiral Harold R. Stark, Commander of U.S. Naval Forces in Europe “Our operations would not have been possible without the strong support of our Merchant Marine. These gallant officers and men maintained a bridge of ships across the Pacific, and bore their share of the Japanese attacks while unloading on distant islands where the struggle was still intense and the issue not yet decided.” Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, U.S. Navy, Chief of Naval Operations Braving the Wartime Seas is the final book of the American Maritime History Project, a private nonprofit foundation. The quotations were drawn from www.usmm.org. Front cover was designed by Marek Mutch, Bay Village, OH.

Let us not forget those who served. We were called to duty and we went to war. These are the stories of a few of those brave young men and women who fought in America’s most unpopular war. These are stories of times, events, and places that should never be forgotten. In war, the brain encircles and captures thoughts, sights, smells and sounds you can never get rid of. After the battle, the mind can shut down, and thoughts begin to smother the brain. If a veteran speaks, listen with open ears and an open mind. They all have something to say. If you are a brother or sister from Vietnam talk to someone, write down your thoughts, contact a brother or sister. If you can, don’t hesitate, Go To The Wall. These things have made me cry but they have brought back the smile that was once forgotten for so many years. Welcome home my brothers and sisters.

This is a honestly realistic novel graphically describing the experiences of a representative group of young Canadians volunteering to fight an unknown enemy in an obscure Asian peninsula for reasons as varied as their ethnic and social backgrounds. The author accurately portrays their motivations and experiences along with a convincing picture of the actual fighting avoiding unwarranted heroics and sensationalism, portraying a truthful account of what Korea was like to the men in the front lines as well as the loves they left behind in Canada and the United States. Written in a chronological form emphasizing its historical perspective centering on the activities of a Canadian battalion, in its build up, training in Canada and the United States, finally indoctrination in battle. The incidents are real for the most part, also indicating for soldiers death and tragedy often occurring unexpectedly, not necessarily confined to the battle field. The contribution of Canada to the United Nations effort halting Communist aggression in the Far East is not as well known as it deserves to be; this book is intended to make up for it.

Americans have been a seafaring people, since before the first Jamestown and Plymouth settlements, as British ships plied the Atlantic conducting coastal trade. It is no wonder then that, even when a small nation, the U. S. Navy proved itself a force to be reckoned with. This tradition continues, as the United States deploys the strongest naval forces in the world. Over three centuries, thousands of American warships and their crews, manning both commissioned vessels and privateers, have helped defend liberty at home and fought for freedom abroad. This monograph describes three of those belligerents, all named CHESTER, all of which achieved sterling records of valiant service. The first CHESTER, an armed galley, fought during the American Revolution, as part of the Continental Navy. Fittingly, it was sponsored by the Maryland Colony, a shipping powerhouse, even during the eighteenth century, and named after its construction location, Chestertown, Maryland. Author Brannock also hails from Maryland and a seafaring heritage. Another CHESTER, a light cruiser, did not emerge until just prior to World War I. It was also named after its mid-Atlantic shipbuilding town, Chester, Pennsylvania. Its crews served in the Great War, mostly on convoy duty, during the submarine warfare engaged in with German U-boats. The third USS CHESTER (CA-27), also a light cruiser, was commissioned in 1930, and also named after Chester, Pennsylvania. Brannock’s account of the duties it performed during the interwar years provides a unique portrayal of life as a U. S. Navy sailor at that time. Political upheavals in nations where American citizens and interests had to be protected were prevalent in Central America, and diplomatic and military missions were carried out, while an arms race engulfed Europe. Moreover, during the glamorous 1930s, millions traveled on ocean-going liners and so naval vessels were greeted in foreign ports by enthusiastic crowds and celebrations. CHESTER crews were feted on two continents. Yet as the decade went on, war clouds darkened, world-wide. By 1941, the United States was in a quasi-war with Germany on the Atlantic Ocean, and Americans in Asia were threatened by Japanese occupation. USS CHESTER steamed into Pearl Harbor naval base in the early afternoon of December 7, 1941, missing the brunt of the early morning Japanese bombings, due to delays caused by a storm at sea. From that day on, CHESTER was active in nearly every major engagement in the Pacific Theater, during World War II. Legendary officers like William “Bull” Halsey commanded CHESTER’s units. Adm. Arleigh Burke served on CHESTER. By 1943, author Brannock had joined the crew as a young enlisted sailor, but one who had logged many hours underway, while serving in the Maryland State Fishery Force. Thus, as a quartermaster on CHESTER’s bridge, Brannock had a gull’s eye view of the battles. His perspective was enhanced by the fact that CHESTER often served as flagship for Cruiser Division 5 and various task forces to which it was temporarily assigned. For these obvious reasons, the account of USS CHESTER’s World War II service comprises the bulk of this book. Because Brannock personally collected the ship’s archives and memoirs, the work offers an unequaled, first-hand and official rendition of the war service of one ship, its officers, and crew. Although thousands of books have been written on World War II, most cover broader subject matter; so small technical and tactical details can be lost. But readers miss little with this tract. So sail along on a riveting ride across two centuries, two oceans, and four continents in this spirited tale of life, duty, and combat on board three American warships, all named CHESTER.
