Troubled Water

Troubled Water: Race, Mutiny and Bravery on a U.S. Aircraft Carrier

It happened in 1972 on the USS Kitty Hawk, one of the world's most accomplished aircraft carriers, with a long, storied history. Wild mobs running through the huge carrier, tearing innocent young sailors out of their bunks, beating them mercilessly, threatening to take over the whole ship. Marines eager to stop the violence but reluctant to fire on their fellow American servicemen.

And in the middle of it all – the two senior officers who will determine whether this already tragic episode ends peacefully or spirals down into one of the darkest moments in Navy history. Together – and sometimes separately, sometimes in spite of each other – they must find a way to end the violent race riot that threatens one of the world's most powerful aircraft carriers.

"Even though the U.S. government continues to deny it, Gregory Freeman has dug out the true hidden story of the first mutiny in the history of the U.S. Navy. You'll enjoy this high seas thriller."

"Gregory Freeman is a master of riveting and thoughtful examinations of military sagas that no one else has the courage to take on. Troubled Water is his finest book in a distinguished career."

Gregg Olsen, NYT bestselling author of The Deep Dark: Disaster and Redemption in America's Richest Mining Town

"Gregory A. Freeman's Troubled Water: Race, Mutiny and Bravery on the USS Kitty Hawk is one of the most riveting books I've read, perhaps ever. ... The author is on top of his game.... Troubled Water is a page turner and burner."
