Troubled Water: Race, Mutiny, and Bravery on the USS Kitty Hawk

Troubled Water: Race, Mutiny, and Bravery on the USS Kitty Hawk - Gregory A. Freeman

Troubled Water: Race, Mutiny, and Bravery on the USS Kitty Hawk


The gripping account of the riot aboard the USS Kitty Hawk--and the first mutiny in U.S. Naval history

In 1972, the United States was embroiled in an unpopular war in Vietnam, and the USS Kitty Hawk was headed to her station in the Gulf of Tonkin. Its five thousand men, cooped up for the longest at-sea tour of the war, rioted--or, as Troubled Water suggests, mutinied. Disturbingly, the lines were drawn racially, black against white. By the time order was restored, careers were in tatters. Although the incident became a turning point for race relations in the Navy, this story remained buried within U.S. Navy archives for decades.

With action pulled straight from a high-seas thriller, Gregory A. Freeman uses eyewitness accounts and a careful and unprecedented examination of the navy's records to refute the official story of the incident, make a convincing case for the U.S. navy's first mutiny, and shed new light on this seminal event in American history.
