In 1998, Cmdr. Andrew Wilde published "The U.S.S. Emmons in World War II," a meticulously researched compilation of historic accounts, pictures and reports. Cmdr. Wilde developed a strong interest in naval history and following retirement from the Navy began editing a series of illustrated ships’ histories, primarily of destroyers sunk in World War II. In them, he included primary source documents such as action reports, ships’ war diaries, medal citations and muster rolls as well as many firsthand accounts. The Emmons was one of his subjects. He did not offer these booklets for sale but sent complimentary copies to survivors and families of deceased crewmembers at the time and to selected libraries. The Emmons' publication is now available here.
