Final Patrol: True Stories of World War II Submarines (Paperback)
Don Keith is a critically-acclaimed, award-winning author. In addition to writing fiction and nonfiction, he heads up the curriculum in Media Marketing and Management at Virginia College and runs the school's full-service advertising and marketing agency.
Sixteen U.S. submarines - and one German U-boat - that saw action during WWII are open to the public. Most have been lovingly restored and authentically equipped. Based on interviews with surviving submariners and declassified U.S. Navy war patrol reports, Final Patrol takes a fascinating look at these subs and tells the personal stories of the brave sailors who lived, fought, and - in many cases - died in them. Now the public can visit and climb into these cramped steel cylinders, peer through their torpedo tubes, and imagine pulling the hatch closed and diving under the sea - perhaps for the last time - to stalk a fanatical enemy who threatened our nation's freedom.
