Beneath the Waves: Submarine Stories of the Twentieth Century by Mary Nida Smith
Published by Skyhorse Publishing (release November 2015) www.skyhorsepublishing.comAmazonB&NBAMPowell’s BooksPre-orders only The unbelievable stories of the heroic men who sailed under the sea.In Beneath the Waves,
many brave men rode submarines to great depths and across the oceans into unknown territory share their experiences, fears, and thoughts. They allow us to travel back in time through their memories. Trained for years to keep silent—for “loose lips sink ships”—many still believe what they know to be classified and refuse to disclose even the minutest of recollections. Others,however, want to leave a legacy of reminiscences for people to learn and live by—to know that freedom is not free. Some stories will never be told. Held within the secret confines of their souls, these deep sea veterans block them out for self-perseverance. Yet, there are others who will never escape their own minds; they relive their underwater experiences over and over with eyes open or shut. Beneath the Waves is about teenage boys who left farms, small towns, and inner cities to defend the
United States and democracy worldwide. Signing up for United States Navy submarine duty was an
adventure of a lifetime during the early 1940s. Dreams of torpedoing Japanese and German ships and
subs consumed their thoughts. Those who returned home as young men were older and wiser. Beneath the Waves was written to honor these men—gallant heroes—who served and are serving today on submarines.
