Books Info:

The Hemingway Patrols free pdf From the summer of 1942 until the end of 1943 Ernest Hemingway spent much of his time patrolling the Gulf Stream and the waters off Cuba's north shore in his fishing boat, Pilar. He was looking for German submarines. These patrols were sanctioned and managed by the US Navy and were a small but useful part of anti-submarine warfare at a time when U boat attacks against merchant shipping in the Gulf and the Caribbean were taking horrific tolls. While almost no attention has been paid to these patrols, other than casual mention in biographies, they were a useful military contribution as well as a central event (to Hemingway) around which important historical, literary and biographical themes revolve.

About Terry Mort

At Princeton, Terry Mort wrote his senior thesis on the Hemingway Hero. Carlos Baker, Hemingway's official biographer, was one of the readers. After that, Terry went to the University of Michigan with the idea of going into academics. He soon realized that the academic world was too restrictive, and besides, the Vietnam War was underway, so he volunteered for the Navy, where is specialties were navigation and gunnery. Along the way Terry bought a 44 foot trawler that he ran up and down the intracoastal waterway for five years or so, and is therefore quite familiar with handling boats like Hemingway's Pilar. In 2000 he had enough of business and travel and started writing and editing, full time. In addition to the books Terry has had short fiction appear in Gray's Sporting Journal and articles in Fly Fishing and in Field
