                  Hey There Jeremy--- did you know that the conning tower of the USS SQUALUS was recovered and now sits as a memorial at the Portsmouth Navy Yard?

                        Hey, I picked up that first one too. I quite enjoyed it (a very quick read).

                        It really led to some interesting thoughts, but I felt like I needed to take a break from the Alt-History forum for a while.



                        DoD might just need to pick up that second one to get his alternate-history fix, though.

                          Actually the Japanese one was written first. Although I'm reading the Nazi one before the other. It'll be on the plane with me today on the way to Boston.(for 3 weeks)

                          I don't like travelling anymore, but hey, I need the money.
