Product description

About the Author

Commander Edward Ellsberg graduated first in his class from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1914. In 1925, he led the effort to raise the S-51, for which he became the first sailor to earn the Distinguished Service Medal during peacetime, and was promoted to Commander by a special act of Congress. In the late 1920s, Ellsberg began his prolific career as a writer of Naval history and fiction.
