In a career that spanned two and a half decades, Bob Kenedy was present when history was being made. As a newly-enlisted sailor, he served on ships that transported President Franklin D. Roosevelt to meetings with South American and Canadian leaders. During World War II he fought in some of the most important--and bloody--battles in the South Pacific. During the Cold War he worked for Naval intelligence and security, safeguarding national secrets. He also assisted top German scientists to emigrate to the United States. The Korean War found him back at sea--and back in battle--again. Through his memoirs, we can experience these events firsthand.
