This little gem starts slow, goes slow,and ends slow. So why is it great? It captures a small drama of the war through the inexperienced eyes of a young deckhand. The captain is largely an unsympathetic character till his reaction at the end (not to be disclosed). Nice character development of young man as he sees and experiences more after a largely sheltered life. A quiet Bates but a gem.
