The Ghost Ship of Brooklyn
An Untold Story of the American Revolution
In vivid and often elegiac prose, Robert Watson has rediscovered a forgotten story about the grim and usually fatal fate of American prisoners of war during the American Revolution. We carry in our heads prim and proper pictures of that patriotic struggle that will need to be revised on the basis of Watson's thorough documentation of the hellish conditions aboard those floating dungeons where twice as many American soldiers and sailors died than in all the battles of the war. Watson makes 'lest we forget' ironic, since until now, we have.

The Nazi Titanic
The Incredible Untold Story of a Doomed Ship in World War II
Based on de-classified British Government files, The Nazi Titanic is a book that reveals heretofore unknown and shocking information about what happened to thousands of Holocaust survivors who, three days after Hitler committed suicide, were put aboard a gigantic ocean liner dubbed "The Nazi Titanc" which was anchored in the Baltic Sea. The fate of the few survivors who did not drown was brutal and devastating when the prison ship was mistakenly sunk by the Royal Air Force. Absorbingly written and painstakingly researched, Professor Robert Watson's newest book tells a compelling and vital story for anyone interested in the Holocasut, human behavior in extremis, and the possible human future.
