a novel by T. Garth Connely
|A man is going through his late father's estate and finds a unpublished memoir on his father's computer. The man prints some of the document and reads it. He discovers a lot about his father which he never knew and realizes that his father led a honorable life and had an undying love for his mother. THE BAMBI is the story of an young and dashing naval officer named Tom Clarke. It follows his life from his experiences at a northeastern prep school in the mid-1930s to his experiences at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland from the mid-1930s to the late-1930s and his experiences in the southwest Pacific during World War II as the skipper of a PT boat.
"Liked the characters and the role in the novel. You showed great thought in the presentation on the book in regards to the letters and the things happening to them. Wow!!! Maybe you should think about a follow-on book about early PT's in the war similar to "They were expendable"."
