    I grew up in (upstate) NY from '53 to '75 before moving to the most awesome state of Texas. At the time, it was a great place to grow into, but no regrets leaving!

    Thanks, even though I could not DL either file. Attempting to save showed "network error". But I finally got them by letting the PDF load in Brave and saving them as...a PDF. Go figure!

    Are you selling books or advising titles, do tell! Yes, I'm interested in American/British code breaking. That and any stories on the "great American torpedo fail" or the coast watchers of WWII.
