I am open to receive your submarine stories for publication in the second book.
SUBMARINE STORIES OF WORLD WAR II is written to honor all the men who have served and are serving today on submarines. Nine veterans share their experiences while serving during the 1940s. Many had never been away from home before they ventured beneath the sea to an unknown world of silence to spy and destroy enemy ships. It was a world which quickly changed naive teenagers into men who took home good and painful memories.
