I recently received your book "The Approaching Storm" from Project Liberty Ship and want you to know that I salute you for your six-year effort to tell what the seamen and German submarine crew men endured at sea. I was a member of the SS MARORE which was torpedoed Feb. 26, 1942 and was picked up 11 hours later. You covered it prettty well even though no pictures were shown. Nevertheless your writings are a masterpiece and I will get great pleasure in showing my 4 children and 10 grand-children what I experienced in the lifeboat: I couldn't find shoes to put on when the torpedo slamed into its side and was cold and barefoot and shook like a leaf until I had a hot cup of coffee the next morning on the ill-fated J.D. GILL.
