Don't Go Near The Water


Don't go near the water,Navy Humor


This is the hilarious novel that all America is laughing with — the ribald and raucous adven­tures of a group of Navy public relations men who are sitting out the war on a fabulous Pacific Island.


War Ashore

A dedicated task force of naval officers who made almost every­thing but sea duty—heroic, landlocked mariners who converted the remote island of Tulura into a Pacific paradise as they gamely fought to win with public relations, far from the sounds of battle.

Led by Lt. Commander Clinton T. Nash, a refugee from a brokerage firm, and rescued from perpetual disaster by Ensign Max Siegel, fresh out of Harvard, this group of salty squares copes with amorous jun­keting Congressmen, glamorous lady correspond­ents, clamorous natives and other unpredictable challenges as they wage the war of the press release.


Movie by M-G-M, starring Glenn Ford, Gia Scala, Anne Francis and Keenan Wynn.
