Harry Homewood was a “qualified” submariner before he was seventeen years old. Having lied to the US Navy about his age, Homewood served in a little “S”-boat in the Asiatic Fleet. After Pearl Harbor was attacked in 1941, he re-enlisted in the “silent service” and made eleven war patrols in the Southwest Pacific. Following World War II, Homewood became Chicago Bureau Chief for “Newsweek,” chief editorial writer for the “Chicago Sun-Times,” and for eleven years had his own weekly news program syndicated to thirty-two PBS television stations. Homewood wrote three submarine novels dealing with Pacific World War II fictional boats: “Final Harbor” – “Silent Sea” – “O God Of Battles” and one post World War II submarine novel, “Torpedo!” Each of his books have been very popular. All are now out of print and difficult to find.
