The Caine Mutiny by Herman Wauk

Off the library shelf. Follows a navy officer through volunteering to a mutiny against a mentally unstable captain. I've seen the movie, and the book had the same sense of tension and action to it.  Lame romantic subplot. It is also incredibly dated, especially in reference to racial attitudes and pop-psychology. Basically good fun, but hard to believe it won the Pulitzer.
