Oh boy, Maddie, The Caine Mutiny. That is another one on my list too. Humphrey Bogart made the movie and was nominated for an Oscar. That is one to watch and to read. And yes I think Mitchner slows down at the end cause he brings the novel up to the present day and I think he gets bored. He prefers his history.
