Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written by the head of the technical investigating team, this book examines the key factors in the 1989 explosion that killed 47 crewmen.

Book News Annotation:

Schwoebel was hired by the Senate Armed Services Committee to investigate the 1989 explosion aboard the battleship Iowa that killed 47 crewmen during a routine gunnery exercise. He provides an insider's account of the Navy's original investigation and the rather different results of his own team's investigation.
