Shared Glory captures the high drama of combat operations, the complexity of war machines and indelible changes
to the lives of the men who fought World War II. Young women were left to sort out developing relationships as virtually all
the males were either in service or on their way to donning a uniform.
After the attack on Pearl
Harbor, Hawaii, by the Japanese, U.S. Navy submariners wasted no time in striking back at Japan. This immediate retaliation
both escalated sagging morale at home and punctured the Japanese bubble of perceived invincibility.
United States Navy Lieutenant Linton Adams, and U.S. Army Air Corps Sergeant Jerry Wagner, have an issue to be ultimately
resolved in the World War II torn southwest Pacific Ocean. In the interim, both travel harrowing paths, Adams through submarine
warfare against Japanese war and merchant ships and Wagner in the bloody skies over Europe and Japan.
Author D.M. Ulmer makes use of a rich and varied background to bring his superb novels to life. “Using
true incidents,” Ulmer says, “spices the tale and brings a certain credibility not found in contrived scenarios.
Though I must remember to change names and protect the guilty.”
The book, fraught with World
War II action scenes, required considerable research into submarine warfare in the southwest Pacific and aerial combat against
Nazi Germany and the Empire of Japan.
