The video of Del Staecker's February presentation on Sailor Man: The Troubled Life and Times of J.P. Nunnally, USN is now available on YouTube.
SAILOR MAN is the illuminating account of James Preston Nunnally, a teenager who lied about his age to enlist in the Navy, endured combat service in World War Two’s Pacific Theater, and returned home. What sets SAILOR MAN apart, making it an invaluable addition to the canon of World War II, is that it also reveals the lesser known dark side—the psychological trauma so many of these brave young men experienced as a result of their repeated encounters with the horror of war—what we now call Post Traumatic Stress. SAILOR MAN is a book that must be read and shared. — Dwight Jon Zimmerman, #1 New York Times bestselling author, and President of the Military Writers Society of America - See more at Del Staecker's website »
