Besprekingen

De inhoud van het boek dat de muiterij op een Amerikaans oorlogsschip tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog met de daarbij behorende krijgsraadzaak behandelt is door toneel, film en televisie dermate bekend dat MUITERIJ op de CAINE ongetwijfeld in bibliotheken thuishoort. De vertaler en zijn 'assistent' van de koninklijke marine zijn dezelfde als die van de uitgave van Scheltens & Giltay (1952) en qua inhoud is er hooguit redactioneel hier en daar iets gewijzigd.
