The Ghost Ship of Brooklyn
An Untold Story of the American Revolution
A fascinating collection of stories of American Revolutionary War soldiers and sailors captured by the British and imprisoned, many of them in the infamous ship, Jersey, the hell that floated off Brooklyn. These stories may have been once forgotten by history, but with the publication of this very readable book that will no longer be possible.

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.
