The story of Until the Sea Shall Free Them does not fit inside Two Tankers Down
any more than Two Tankers Down fits inside Until the Sea Shall Free Them. Still,
the Pendleton and the Fort Mercer marked an important time in Coast Guard
inspection history, and the readers of this book should benefit a bit from the
context of that history. One has to ask what lessons were learned from the fact
that two identical tankers known to contain flaws split in two at exactly the same
time? Did the ...

He walked through the office to the small chamber that served as a bedroom. He
took off his clothing. It had been several days since he'd changed. He quickly
showered and got dressed again. He put a brush through his hair, with some
difficulty, then brushed his teeth. Back in his office he looked out the window. The

came every week like clockwork, and Dewey knew all of their captains. It took
twelve hours ...

They went down 500 feet, moved to the right 1,000 to 1,500 feet, accelerated
back to speed, and would be on the way. Green Two was moving into position
just like clockwork. Green Lead accelerated alongside the tanker. As they passed
, the AC gave a thumbs-up signal to the tanker crew. The tanker copilot was
clasping his hands over his head like a boxer who had won a fight. Both crews
understood, and they separated. Two more tankers and down the chute to
combat—it was hard ...

Sonar reported two more explosions before the submarine came up to periscope
depth to resume the attack. Trigger fired two bow torpedoes at the third freighter
in the column and scored two hits on the target which went down by the bow. The
submarine then made two more attacks on the freighter, but all of her torpedoes
either missed or were duds. During the three and one-half hours of action,
Trigger sank two tankers, Shiriya and Shoyo Maru, and a freighter, Argun Maru,
for a total ...

Close on the heels of two ten-ton trucks loaded with troops, came three petrol
tankers and one half track. Agwu stared with disbelief at the stupefying spectacle.
He felt paralysed. Next there followed two armoured personnel carriers, three
more trucks loaded down with troops and two petrol tankers. Agwu found it
increasingly difficult to breathe easily. A thick, filmy and greyish haze started
swimming in front of his eyes. 'Please God,' he prayed, 'whatever it is the big boys
have up their ...

the Indian ceremonial rites, a huge fire was started, Onondaga fashion, and the
visiting Chiefs called upon the High War Spirit to pour down his favors on the two
tankers.

The exec was get— ting ready to go up to the bridge, where he would conduct
the tor— pedo attacks against the two tankers up ahead. Instead of the periscope
he'd be using the target—bearing transmitters, or TBTs. These were ... be

Severe Grades Roads that contain severe grades, whether they be uphill or
downhill grades, pose challenges for drivers of fire department tankers. Of the
two, severe downhill grades pose the greatest amount of danger. The influence
of gravity on the vehicle creates the tendency for the vehicle to accelerate as it
travels down grade. Unless the driver exercises appropriate safety measures (
shifting to a lower gear, applying the brakes periodically, etc.), the vehicle may
reach speeds ...

Undaunted, the tankers turned their vehicles west and headed twenty miles
downriver to Bayambang and the only remaining bridge over the Agno.
Unfortunately, no direct route connected the two river towns. Surrounded by
darkness, the tankers forced their way down small dirt roads and narrow paths,
losing only one tank in the process when it threw a track and flipped over into a
ditch. Although Company B ran into a smattering of enemy troops, it managed to
avoid the main body of ...
