  • “CONGRATULATIONS on a marvelous book! I just finished reading it this evening ... Have to confess, I found tears coming to my eyes when I was reading your description of the heroics of our destroyermen during the Samar engagement. SUPERB writing and impressive research. I like to think I am a good writer -- and I am ... You are a SUPERB writer with a talent for painting vivid word pictures that I admire.” -- Robert D., Montclair, VA -- USA Go to the top of the page
  • “I would like to tell you how much I enjoyed ‘Afternoon of the Rising Sun.’ For years I have had an interest in the Battle of Leyte Gulf as my father was there. His name was Lt. Verling Pierson (later Lt. Cmdr.) and he served under Radm. Sprague on the Fanshaw Bay. In fact, you know this as you quoted Dad several times in your book.”

    “No library is complete without Hoyt and Morison but your book has made the Battle of Leyte Gulf really come alive for me unlike any other time in my life. It is the most readable account of this great battle battle I have read. For that, I thank you. For including Dad is this wonderful accounting, I can only attempt to thank you. If he were still with us he would be pleased to do so himself.”

    “'Afternoon of the Rising Sun' is a tremendous addition to my military library as it will be for the rest of my family. It brings Dad once again into our thoughts and, at a time when Freedom has been challenged in much the same way as WWII, reminds us of his part in preserving it and the importance of doing it now.” -

    “On behalf of my family, I thank you for this great gift.” --

  • “I enjoyed reading your book! . . . There are certainly NOT enough books about this great battle. . . . I might add that I felt, after reading the chapters on the Battle off Samar, that I came away with a much better understanding of the ship movements and especially the counterattacks of the American destroyers and DE's. As another reader has mentioned, the maps really helped a lot. Thanks for your contributions to the memory of this battle and the TRUE heroes who fought it. Thanks for your work!!” Patrick A. -- Burkett, TX -- USA Go to the top of the page
  • “Thanks for your outstanding work. Many of us on the network who are on this network were on the USS Olympic (AGC-8) at Leyte Gulf on October 20, 1944. . . Keep up the good work.” Frank O. -- Columbus, OH -- USA Go to the top of the page
