Some suggestions to get you started:
Watch the movie Mr. Roberts - most accurate movie about a Transport/Cargo ship in WWII.
Away All Boats is Hollywood version, but some insights can be gained.

Books:
Combat Loaded - Across the Pacific on the USS Tate by Tom Crew
All Came Home by Paul K. McDevit - About APA 48 U.S.S. Leon
THE LADY GANGSTER by Del Staecker

Other suggestions:
Sail on one of the Liberty or Victory ships or visit one of the historic ships.
