About this title

Synopsis:

This adventure novel takes you along on the voyage of a small amphibious ship of the U. S. Navy during World War II as it struggles from Little Creek, Virginia, to the Southwest Pacific theatre of the war. It chronicles the successes, failures, loves, and fears of the civilians turned naval officers as well as the other crew members of one little-known ship, Landing Ship Medium (LSM) 460.5. In addition, the book pays homage to the "Mustang" officers, who were the key to success in the LSM progam during the war.

About the Author:

For ten years he co-wrote and produced his Bar Association's annual Gridiron production. Already the author of two suspense novels, he is now completing a third.

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
