Briny To The Blue – Memoirs of WWII by Captain Bernard W. Peterson, U.S.M.C.R. Ret. This unique personal account of WWII in the Pacific Theater, through the eyes of a very young sailor, takes the reader into the battle action of the three major aircraft carriers to Wake, Midway and Guadalcanal. The lack of our country’s readiness prior to WWII is noted, as are numerous earlier carrier battles and surface sea battles. Heartrending accounts of the uncommon valor of his companions and their untimely deaths make us aware of their great sacrifices. Over two hundred rare photographs, some never before shown, are included.

Short Straw – Memoirs of Korea by Captain Bernard W. Peterson, U.S.M.C.R. Ret. This is Captain Peterson’s sequel to ‘Griny to the Blue (above). It is Captain Peterson’s own reflection of his personal experience. If his story adds just one small facet to the factual history of the intensive actions in that conflict carried out by all American combat units and their United Nations allies, and if it stimulates additional investigation by historians, it will have achieved its primary aim.
