A “nugget” is a new naval aviator—green and untested—and Lieutenant Bobby Steele fits the description perfectly. Awaking on a strange ship following a night of revelry with his friends, Steele is front and center for one of the most devastating attacks in US history: the Japanese destruction of Pearl Harbor. The tragedy Steele witnesses drives him to be a better pilot, a stronger man, and a leader in the war.
Bobby Steele experiences some of the most significant battles of WWII, including the Battle of Midway, and centers on what Steele went through to survive after the sinking of the submarine, Hagfish. His survival story unfolds as he tells a court of inquiry what he endured during his seeming two-year disappearance from the navy.
P.T. Deutermann’s latest novel, The Nugget is a tour de force of excitement and intrigue. A former Navy man himself, Deutermann captures the pace and passion of men at war, and his descriptions are riveting and personal. It is hard to imagine anyone not being immersed in this novel.
