Hello everyone, I really hope you can help me. I am not a writer but I came across something that I think may be a good idea but I don't know what to do with it. You see, my father passed away in February of 07. We found tapes in his house that he dictated about his life, particulary WWII. He goes into detail about battles he was in on a Navy distroyer. What makes this story more interesting is that he was hero and no one knew. He told our pastor about what he did but swore him to secrecy until Dad died. This all came out at the funeral. Dad was responsible for saving many lives but in the process a few died at his hand. It could not be helped. It was 200 live and 13 die or they all die. He could never forget the ones that didn't make it so he carried the secret all his life. Oh it gets better! The battle that he carried with him all his life, the date of that battle coincided with his death this year. There is so much more that I don't have room to go into here but my question is, do you think this could be a good book and what kind? Should it just be about his war experience or his life? Or maybe should I tell it from my perspective and maybe start at the funeral when all this stuff first came out? I came upon this forum accidently and I thought why not run this by all of you considering I have no idea what I am doing. I hope you don't mind me intruding but I really would love to hear your advice. Thank you so much.
