From Tony on 11/04/06: "Entitled IRON MEN AND TIN FISH, the book describes the torpedo problems we faced in the war. Although the BLUEGILL was commissioned after the problems were solved, she still figures in the book, as I use your attack against YUBARI to demonstrate the effectiveness of the newly debugged torpedoes. Also, Capt. Barr figures in the book not only for the YUBARI attack but as XO of KINGFISH, where he did experience many torpedo failures with Rebel Lowrance.

I would like to thank all of you for inspiring me to write the book and I hope to begin my next project soon. More details about the book are on my website, www.tonynewpower.com.
