He participated in the landings at Normandy, Lingayen Gulf and Iwo Jima. He also wrote Devious Intent, a novel that has nothing of war or the military, only the results of an active imagination Book Summary: As a memoir of shipboard life during World War II, the story is an accurate depiction of life aboard a combat vessel during the invasions of Normandy, Lingayen Gulf in the Philippines, Iwo Jima, and landing in Wakayama, Japan.
