Overview

Linnett (investigative journalist) and Loiederman (television writer) tell the story of how two young crew members took over a tramp steamer carrying napalm to Thailand for the war in Vietnam, thus carrying out the first armed mutiny aboard an American ship in 150 years. Grounded in sworn testimony and interviews with the crew and investigators who were first to arrive on the scene, the account chronicles the mutiny and the ensuing investigations and trials, as well as the complex psychological factors involved.
