Robert Schultz is making author appearances in connection with the publication of We Were Pirates: A Torpedoman’s Pacific War.

Recently he and coauthor James Shell spoke at the Navy Day celebration, October 13, at the United States Navy Memorial, Washington, D.C.

Schultz will deliver the keynote address at the Maritime Symposium, Dossin Great Lakes Maritime Museum in Detroit March 6, 2010.  The USS Tambor served as a training sub near Detroit after the war, and its periscope is part of an exhibit at the Dossin museum.

Schultz’s talk at the Pritzker Military Museum, Chicago, will be simulcast on the world wide web November 7, 10:00 a.m. CST.

Schultz’s first full-length work of nonfiction, We Were Pirates: A Torpedoman’s Pacific War, tells the story of World War II in the Pacific through the remarkable experiences of Robert Hunt, torpedoman on the submarine USS Tambor for 12 consecutive war patrols. Hunt was an eyewitness to key events at Wake Island, Pearl Harbor, the Battle of Midway, the Philippines, and Japanese shipping lanes in the Far East.
