I'd vote to add two: "HMS Ulysses", by Alistair MacLean, and "The Ship", by C S Forester. Like "The Cruel Sea", they're set in the Royal Navy, but the experiences - and the messages - are transcendent.

I will admit that my nomination for inclusion may be slightly out of your "sea/navel" category as it involves the Marines. Nevertheless, because the Marines are part of the Navy, I would nominate "Battle Cry" by Leon Uris.

You forgot to chide Mr. Massey for not posting about the many contributions people of color made for the United States war effort.
