Edward L. Beach

Edward L. Beach graduated from the US Navy's submarine school in December 1941, two weeks after Pearl Harbor. He commanded submarines in the Pacific throughout the rest of the war. His first novel, Run Silent Run Deep, became an immediate bestseller, and was later made into a Hollywood blockbuster.
