Stories from the Sea
At sea, the four-hour watch at the end of the work day is cut in half to make two dog watches. Drawn from thirty-five years in the Navy, in a career ranging from from seaman to captain, Rolf Yngve's Dog Watches brings to life the men and women who stand the dog watches, the moments when their decisions define them and shape the lives of those in their care
The stories of DOG WATCHES come from seas where duty and service are lashed by desire, doubt, and human frailty. From his thirty-five years in the U.S. Navy, Captain Rolf Yngve has created compelling reading for anyone struggling with the deep demands of civic duty and personal responsibility.
Rolf Yngve is a career officer in the US Navy who first wrote and published short fiction in the 1970s, when his story "The Quail" was anthologized in BEST AMERICAN SHORT STORIES 1979.
