Index. DJ is price clipped. DJ has slight wear and soiling. Nice inscription, signed by Charles Adair, formerly commanding officer of the U.S.S. Lanikai on half title, written at Annapolis on Christmas Day 1973. Adair later achieved the rank of Rear Admiral. It was inscribed to a United States Army Colonel and noted that the Lanikai was the only commissioned ship in the United States Navy to operate under sail in the combat zone! When World War II broke out, he was serving with the Asiatic Fleet based in the Philippines. Eventually, he led three officers and 18 sailors in an escape from Corregidor aboard an 80-foot schooner. The story of the escape was told in the book "The Cruise of the Lanikai," written by fellow officer Kemp Tolley, who later retired from the Navy as a rear admiral. The book detailed the schooner's 4,000-mile trip to Java, then the final 900-mile leg to Allied lines in Australia.

Bibliography. Appendix. Index. DJ has some wear, edge tears and soiling. Inscribed and dated by the author on the dedication page to Uri and Senia Olkhovsky!!! USS Lanikai, was a schooner-rigged diesel powered yacht commissioned into the United States Navy during both World War I and World War II, before being transferred to the Royal Australian Navy. The ship was built as MY Hermes by W. F. Stone of Oakland, California, in 1914, for the Williams-Diamond Company, agents for the trading company Jaluit-Gesellschaft of Hamburg, Germany. Lanikai was taken into the United States Navy at Cavite Navy Yard, Philippine Islands, under charter from Luzon Stevedoring Co., on 5 December 1941, and commissioned the same day with Lieutenant (and future admiral) Kemp Tolley in command. The author was commanding officer of the Lanikai, which was commissioned as a U.S. navy ship on 5 December 1941; her real mission was to provoke the Japanese to sink her, thus triggering U.S. entry into World War II. The book detailed the schooner's 4,000-mile trip to Java, then the final 900-mile leg to Allied lines in Australia.
