The Saga of the Lucky Lou

  • By Larry Fridley
$11.79

Product Description
Many Americans can vividly recount the horrific details of the attacks on Pearl Harbor of December 7, 1941. Few know the story of the USS St. Louis, and her victorious stand against the Japanese. Dubbed the "Lucky Lou" for her uncanny ability to dodge enemy fire and remain afloat during World War II, she cemented her place in U.S. Navy history when she was the first ship to go to general quarters during the attack, and the only ship that successfully fought her way out of the torpedo-ridden harbor and into the open sea. The Saga of the Lucky Lou tells her story, as well as the tales of the young men who walked her decks, manned her guns, and embodied her spirit. Larry Fridley's blend of historical and political context, hilarious personal anecdotes, and narration of the passionate fight to save her from an unsavory ending, will enthrall the reader with the vivid tale of one of America's greatest ships. Unconquerable at best and unforgettable at worst, this is the true saga of the Lucky Lou, the ship the Japs couldn't sink.
