BOOK REVIEW | Warlord of the Seas

By Dom Mee with Mark Time

An amazing tale of war, piracy, adventure and business ghost written for former Royal Marine and adventurer Dom Mee. The writer actually exists although his real name is not, of course, Mark Time. He is a good writer so it is odd that he does not use his real name.

BOOK REVIEW | Prisoner of the Samurai – Surviving the sinking of the USS Houston and the Death Railway

 

By James Gee and Rosalie H. Smith. Edited by Allyson Smith

His recollections were recorded by a nurse whose daughter found and edited her manuscript many years later. Fortunately, she managed to have it published by the always innovative and adventurous Casemate Publishers.
