Litwiller’s skill as a story-teller makes the reader feel like a member of the Trentonian crew from the time of its launch at Kingston harbor on Sept. 1, 1943 until its torpedoing by the German submarine, U-1004.
Maritime Engineering Journal
Along with using the official records of the ship, the author has interviewed many of the men who served in Trentonian who each have a unique personal perspective. Photographs from the private collections of the crew and military archives bring the book to life, illustrating this testament to the ship and the men who served in it.
It takes unedited quotations from participants and those outsiders associated with these ships, recorded thoughts and comments at the time by crew, to bring the story alive with people.
