I am a Naval Historian. I have written five books since 1994. They are PT BOATS IN ACTION, VOSPER MTBs IN ACTION, US 110' SUBCHASERS IN ACTION, U.S. PATROL TORPEDO BOATS IN WORLD WAR II, 1939-1945, and I've co-authored SCHNELLBOOT IN ACTION. I have also written several articles that have appeared in MODEL SHIP BUILDER, SHIPS IN SCALE, MODEL SHIP JOURNAL and the International Plastic Modelers' Society's MODELERS JOURNAL since 1996. I was awarded the 2000 Clean Sweep Award by the Veterans Association known as PT BOATS, INCORPORATED because of my continuing effort to promote the history of PT boats in World War II.
