Hi all,
On another site I learned about a new book coming out about PT-109 and her three skippers. It's called "Into the Dark Water, The Story of Three Officers and PT-109" by John J. Domagalski. I'm not familiar with the author. Maybe Gene Kirkland knows him? Anyway, it's available at Amazon for pre-order. I placed an order for a copy.

You'll all be glad to know that Garth can't resist taking shots at me still. All is right in the world.
Dave

I'm not familiar with the author but his other books received good reviews. We'll see what comes of it.

Here's the author's web site.

Dave;
Seems like The Solomons Campaign is his specialty. From what I see here, (without seeing the book yet), this is a new angle for PT 109 books, but it does appear to mirror Gene's write up.
Take care,
TED

Interesting. I would have chosen a better cover photo, but...

Maybe there'll be some photos in the book we haven't seen.

I received my copy of Into The Dark Waters today. I just read the first chapter and it's a well written book. Not a difficult read like what I'm going through right now. Looking forward to this one.
