    Edward Beach just died. Story on CNN web.

    Ed Beach's books were good reads about the Silent Service and his book on Pearl Harbor blame earned him even more respect in my eyes. He will be missed.

    Steve Is that it, then?

    I have not read any of his books, but will pick up a few, now, thanks Shiny.

    BTW, W.E.B. Griffin has authored some good fictional series about the military, probably some 30 books in total, dealing with the Army, Army Aviation, the Marines, the OSS, and others. He's a pretty good read, and everything is set against real events.

    I agree. His formal approach to writing about women and relationships in his books is a reminder of gentler days when gentlemen were gentlemen. His heroes may have feet of stone but are noble in deed. Good reads.

    Sad. I knew him a little, when I lived in Washington. Nice guy.
