WAR STORIES - Book coverA collection of true WAR STORIES describing acts of great heroism and acts of pure blundering, intrepid leadership and self-serving vainglory, brilliant wartime technological developments and secret weapon duds. Some will inspire readers; others will astound them with the military stupidity they reveal.

Author's Note: 

This book is a collection of military history articles the author wrote over the decades for various magazines and web sites. They describe acts of great heroism and acts of pure blundering, intrepid leadership and self-serving vainglory, brilliant technological developments born of war and not so brilliant ideas. Some, I hope, will awe the reader with their inspirational stories. Others, I suspect, will astound the reader by the stupidity they reveal. While this book is titled War Stories, I confess there are two articles that do not deal with warfare. Instead, they deal with men battling the sea. As every old salt—and I consider myself one—knows, the sea is a merciless foe and a seaman's first enemy.
