Peter Albano served in the U.S. Navy from 1942 to 1946, participating in some of the bloodiest landings in the Western Pacific. This background prepared him for the writing of Tides of Valor. It would be hard to find more authentic combat descriptions anywhere in World War II literature.
Albano selected two protagonists who, though related by blood, could not be more opposite in temperament. Rodney lives a luxurious life on Fifth Avenue,but his brother Nathan has become a Marxist radical opposed to everything Rodney stands for. It all changes when war breaks out. Rodney goes to sea seeking revenge for Pearl Harbor. His brother ends up in the vicious North African campaign. Both must fight for their lives, their beliefs, and their nation’s glory.
E-Reads publishes another stirring novel of World War II, Waves of Glory.
