Running a Big Ship

'If Moses could control the people of Israel for forty years in the desert with Ten Commandments, it would be surprising if more were needed for the commission of a ship.'

First published in 1937, Running a Big Ship gives a truly unique insight into life at sea during World War II. Bringing together all of Captain Rory O'Connor's experience and expertise after commanding HMS Hood as the youngest Captain on the Navy List, this book is now recognised as one of the most influential yet accessible volumes on naval command and organisation.
