Douglas A. Campbell is the author of The Sea's Bitter Harvest: Thirteen Deadly Days on the North Atlantic. Previously a longtime reporter for the Philadelphia Inquirer, he writes for Soundings magazine.
"[A] highly emotional account of the brief life of the USS Flier . . . heartbreaking detail . . . [T]here is more to Campbell's story than the ordeal of these eight men. . . . Campbell puts the rescue into a larger context. We get mostly untold stories of Muslim resistance fighters and American missionaries living in the Philippines, and one surprising account of an American soldier of Philippine descent. . . . Campbell also shows us the peculiar dangers of Pacific submarine warfare." --Bill Kent, Philadelphia Inquirer
