WWII submarine focus in December issue Naval Issue
« on: November 04, 2014, 07:16:34 AM »
The December issue of the Naval Insitute's prestigious Naval History magazine features an outstanding WWII U.S. submarine warfare focus. It includes an excellent lead story by noted author James Scott which discusses the Silversides' role and I'm humbled to have a couple of photos from my collection included as well, interior shots of the Batfish and a wartime firsthand account of the Batfish's sinking of three submarines.

I have seen copies for sale at Barnes & Noble but they were not stocked at my local one when I was there Friday.

More information about the magazine or back issues can be found at www.usni.org.

I was in the bookstore the other day and knew I was forgetting something... :)
"When you're holding people's attention, I feel you must give them high-quality ingredients. They deserve nothing but your best. And if they need information, get it, cross-check it, and try to be right. Do not waste their time; do not enjoy the ego trip of being onstage."
