Merriam Press Military History. This is a work of both historical fact and fiction, that captures an era of Army glory in San Diego at the turn of the 20th century. The Army's presence, at North Island and Fort Rosecrans, is little-known in the more dominant local naval history, yet crucial to the development of early Point Loma, San Diego and Coronado. The book also relives the tragic explosion, on July 21, 1905, of USS Bennington that took the lives of 65 men, another major piece of San Diego history that has been all but forgotten over time. It remains one of the most terrible peacetime military disasters. This is a smart-looking, quick read that brings to life many forgotten pieces of the past, while adding personalities and personal interaction based on written accounts of the time. Portions of the proceeds from the sale of this book will benefit families of fallen EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) personnel. 104 color/sepia photos, paintings, drawings, illustrations.
