FLIGHT TO FREEDOM-- AVAILABLE SEPT. 28, 2022!!
Being a prisoner of war wasn’t an option.
As Japanese forces rounded-up almost eleven thousand prisoners after the fall of Corregidor, the remaining crew of the USS Tanager, two Army nurses and a couple of shipwrecked merchant mariners band together and attempt to escape to freedom in Australia. Pursued by a relentless Japanese officer, the group commandeers an old schooner. Through uncharted islands and stormy seas, they must outsail and outsmart Japanese forces sent to capture or kill them. Inspired by a true story of early World War II heroism, Flight To Freedom is the story of a diverse group of people who just won’t give up.
"Flight to Freedom is an exciting and compelling read. Anthony Palmiotti has created an eclectic band of characters to undertake this hazardous journey.
This is an enjoyable and inspiring story that will have readers enthralled from the beginning to the end. I can highly recommend this read."

THE HELL RUN
It’s the dark days of World War II. The Norwegian resistance had been fighting a quiet battle against their Nazi occupiers by sending vital information back to the allies. But when they start taking a more aggressive role the occupiers decide they must be eliminated.
The liberty ship John Ireland, after surviving the dangerous North Atlantic and Arctic trip to Murmansk, is chosen to become part of the effort to rescue Norwegian civilians and carry them to safety in England before the Nazi’s can carry out the order to wipe them out.
Based on a real, but little-known mission during World War II.
Congratulations on your 5-star review!
"The Hell Run was a refreshing perspective on the naval war of WWII. The action sequences in the story were exciting, well documented, and to this layman, seemingly unerringly accurate, in the descriptions of naval warfare. If you love WWII stories, this book is something a little different, highly readable, and one that I know you will adore. For readers everywhere, this is a book I can highly recommend."

"The book has fantastic pacing to portray the tension and suspense of wartime operations." Reader's Favorite!
DEATH BENEATH THE WAVES
In the early days of World War II the German Navy instituted Operation Drumbeat. Direct attacks off the American coastline. This is about those early days against a powerful U-boat enemy.
"Palmiotti’s prose flows beautifully from chapter to chapter, taking readers on an epic journey that sweeps from the mastery of the seas to the claustrophobic setting of the U-boat interior itself." K.C Finn- Reader's Favorite
"Palmiotti’s story is hard to put down, and his characters are superbly delineated and credible." Jack Magnus- Reader's Favorite
"The plot is fast-paced and unpredictable, propelling an anxious reader along. The narrative is strongest when capturing the operations of the sailors and the maneuvers of the sailing vessels, not surprising since author Anthony Palmiotti is a licensed merchant marine officer and professor of navigation and vessel operations." Historical Novel Society
Share the adventure as Patrick Welch and the crew of the ARROW travel to foreign ports, take on the Nazis and the German Navy. Its 1938 and the world is shaping up for World War II.
"Add to that First Voyage’s rightful claim as a first-rate historical novel, and you’ve got one of the best books of the year as far as I can see. Palmiotti’s writing is translucent and lyrical at times, but always highly accessible and, like a siren’s call, quite irresistible. First Voyage is a most impressive debut novel, and it’s most highly recommended" Reader's Favorite
"Told with great love of the seas and the hard-bit men who plow them, this coming of age adventure is sure to delight maritime history fans. Here’s to hoping that the voyages continue and Palmiotti has a shot at becoming the Patrick Taylor of the high seas". Historical Novel Society , November 2017
