Unsinkable Sailors by retired US Navy Reserve Captain Paul Sherbo is a chilling historical account of the at-sea collision of the USS Frank E. Evans (DD-745), a United States Navy destroyer, and the Australian aircraft carrier HMAS Melbourne. This book is the only comprehensive source of original interviews and research along with official naval records that centers on the Evans crewmembers. The story of the collision that sank the bow half of the Evans is told by those who lived the nightmare on the morning of 3 June in 1969. It is a story of personal tragedy, survival and perseverance.
Capt. Paul Sherbo, USNR (Ret.), a former newspaperman, served six years active duty with the U.S. Navy, including service in Iraq as the Fifth Fleet's representative to Coalition Forces in Baghdad. Paul and his wife Diana now live in Colorado.
