EXPLOSION ABOARD THE IOWA, by Richard L. Schwoebel, Naval Institute Press, Annapolis, Md, 1999, ISBN 1-55750-810-0. This is not just a Navy book -- it is a book about investigations of the explosion aboard a US battleship that killed forty-seven crewmen. in 1989. Navy investigators concluded the explosion was not an accident. The author, who was head of the technical team hired by the Senate Armed Services Committee, came to a different conclusion. This is the story of the investigation, involving the Navy, the FBI, and Congressional committees, and in general, life in the DC bureaucratic and political arenas. Interesting and educational.
