About the Book

THE REICH MUTINY is based on a factual account of a previously undisclosed incident aboard a German U-boat off the coast of Florida in 1942. Two Americans, members of the German American Bund in New York and involved in Nazi-sponsored anti-war sentiments, train for sabotage of east coast shipping manufacturers and after Pearl Harbor, are subsequently picked up near Morgan City, Louisiana by a German U-boat, the U-168, and taken to Germany for further training.

As the Americans survive a sea battle, tour occupied Paris and Berlin, and finally complete their training in Hanau, they realize that they have become caught in the political in-fight between the SD, the intelligence wing of the SS, and the Abwehr, the German army intelligence agency.

The Americans’ eventual participation in the mutiny and slaughter aboard the U-168 drives them underground inside the U.S. as they try to elude a relentless SS assassin, obsessed with the completion of his mission.

THE REICH MUTINY spans both sides of the Atlantic, contains a fascinating love interest, historical perspective, murder, revenge, and mutiny on the high seas.
