Harm, Mac, and Bud go to the Black Sea to observe war games between the US and Russian navies; Harm and Bud go to a Russian ship, and Mac to a US ship. The two commanding officers are old enemies who try hard to settle old grudges. Troubles brew aboard the Russian ship, not the least of which is that the captain is a psychotic with a secret plan of his own for his ship and himself; he eventually loses control of himself, his crew, and his ship. Harm and Bud make the most of the situation aboard the Russian ship, and they eventually reach the US vessel in safety. Mac helps the US skipper, in part with her ability to speak and understand Russian. Written by DocRushing
