The adventures of a young man who experienced the biggest war the world has ever seen

COOKSTOWN, NEW JERSEY, USA, April 14, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Bane Skiles has always lived a comfortable life—he is young, handsome, and healthy. But looking to escape this comfort and seeking to fulfill a desire for adventure, before his college graduation in the early 1940s, he makes plans to sail around the world alone in the family’s sailboat, Voyager. Bane is thrilled to begin an expedition of a lifetime and sets sail in the fall of 1941—until Pearl Harbor is bombed and World War II ensues.

In the wake of the attacks, Bane returns home and enlists in the Navy and soon becomes a PT boat captain, fighting from the Solomon Islands to Indonesia.
