    This acclaimed World War II psychological court room drama was the sensation of 1954. The play portrays a mutiny of naval officers aboard the U.S.S. Caine. Their suspicions concerning their captain's sanity lead to their rebellion and a subsequent court-martial.

    Jean says: "A modern day mutiny"
    "Well Done - and better than the movie!"

    Story

    Better than the movie (which I loved) because (1) there is no corny romance element to the story; and, more importantly, (2) the defending attorney does not shame the aspiring novelist for having undermined the Captain, but he rather shames the aspiring novelist for having effectively removed a mine sweeper during the most dangerous period of the War in the Pacific. This slight variance is important and it makes it clear that the stakes were super high and the impact of such a mutiny had the potential impact on more than just the reputation of a distinguished captain, but rather on the outcome of the war. Based on this, I am inspired to read Woulk's Winds of War and War and Rememberance.
