    Thomas E. Simmons, author of Forgotten Heroes of World War II: Personally Accounts of Ordinary Soldiers Land, Sea and Air, will be at Bay Books signing his book on Saturday, November 29th from 12:00PM-2:00PM.

    Forgotten Heroes of World War II offers contemporary readers fourteen intensely personal perspectives of individual rank-and-file soldiers, aviators, and seamen who were quite ordinary people thrown into the extraordinary and often horrific demands of World War II combat. Their strength and valor are commemorated in this moving, compelling, informative, and highly recommended contribution to the growing library of World War II military histories.
    
    Thomas E. Simmons has served as commercial captain of a seventy-foot sailing vessel, been a pilot since the age of sixteen, flown professionally, and participated in air shows flying aerobatics in open-cockpit bi-planes. In 1960 he served as an artillery officer in Korea. He lives in Gulfport, Mississippi.
