This is one of the best naval stories I have read in years. – Neely Sexton

This is a book for Clancy, Follett, Reeman, and Poyer fans. The Marathon Watch pits treachery, deceit, and betrayal against naval traditions of duty, honor, and loyalty. At the center of this struggle is the oldest US naval destroyer, the USS Farnley. The chief of naval operations steps in to rescue the Farnley and bring an unscrupulous admiral to justice, but disaster strikes. Guided by the canons of tradition, the Farnley’s courageous captain and crew disobey the admiral’s orders. In a life-or-death struggle, the Farnley sails in harm’s way to save the life of a single man and the future of the US Navy.

Leadership lessons abound in this story of duty and honor. New in this edition, a leadership discussion guide!
