5.0 out of 5 stars Admiral Dan Remembered 15 Aug 2000
By Dale F. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This bio covered much of his early life, career and family that wasn't covered in Adm. Gallery's autobiography, Eight Bells. In writing about Adm. Dan's early life, Mr. Gilliand shows how he became the leader that he became. It delves into his defense of the post WWII navy against the politics of those who would have depleted our country of a means to secure the seas with anything less than nuclear deterance and how his continued defense of our Navy may have cost him further promotions. It touches on his struggle against alcoholism. Best of all, it shows how this hero handled the problems of his various commands in war and in peace. This was an excellent book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating book 16 July 2011
By Marghi Hopkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent read. It's a well written book about one of the founders of Naval Aviation. Admiral Gallery was an amazing man who stood behind his beliefs, willing to buck authority to support his men and do his job. You cannot help but cheer at some of his antics. I have loaned this book to several of my friends in Naval Aviation. They are equally enthusiastic about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE STORY OF AN UNSUNG HERO 25 Dec 1999
By DOMENIC BAVETTA - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
THIS BOOK HAS BEEN LONG AWAITED FOR THOSE OF US WHO ARE FANS OF ADMIRAL DANIEL V. GALLERY. IT FILLS IN THE MISSING PIECES FROM THE ADMIRAL'S AUTOBIOGRAPHY FROM SO MANY YEARS AGO, AND GIVES US A BETTER LOOK AT THE MAN I AND MANY OTHERS HAVE COME TO ADMIRE OVER THE YEARS. EXCELLENT READING FOR ANYONE WHO HAS ENJOYED ANY OF ADMIRAL GALLERY'S BOOKS, BECAUSE IT SHOWS YOU WHERE HIS INSPIRATION CAME FROM.

5.0 out of 5 stars Admiral Dan Gallery - OLD SCHOOL, sailors sailor! 26 April 2010
By SSN A-Gang - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Suggested reading for all who have a high regard for the HONOR and VALUES of our forefathers!
Captain John McCain NEVER would have graduated from Gallery's Annapolis and would have stayed married to his first wife after enjoying a lack luster but HONORABLE life as a hardware clerk.
