Author Peter Chestnut Pens the History of Two German Ships, Schanhorst and Gneisenau

Dunwoody, GA, USA – WEBWIRE

A delightful military and historical fiction that overloads on naval battle action and suspense over a mystical Siamese cat

The historical fiction “Sea Fox with Attila” revolves around two German battleships Scharnhorst and Gneisenau. The book talks about two great Kriegsmarine (War Navy in Greman) ships operating during World War II. Scharnhorst and Gneisenau were two German capital ships operating together for most of the early part of World War II.
Schanhorst is the lead ship of her class which included Gneisenau. They are known to have sunk and captured dozens of vessels that belonged to Britain, crippling the Allied nation’s supply line. This irks the British Prime Minister Winston Churchill so much that he commands that these two “Ugly Sisters” be brought down before they destroy England. What adds to the Admiralty’s frustration is the presence of Attila, a large Siamese abroad the Schanhorst. Attila seems to be a mystical force that protects the Germans.
“Sea Fox with Attila” will be displayed on May 30, 2018 in the 2018 New York Rights Fair.

About the Author
Peter was born in Toronto, Canada May 25, 1938. He grew up in his father’s grocery store during World War II. As a young teenager, Peter joined the Book-of-the-Month Club. For joining the Club, he received Winston Churchill’s complete set of the History of World War II. It was reading this incredible figures works that he developed a lifelong interest in this great historical event.

As a photographer Peter was just average, so he proceeded to pursue a career in the processing side of photography. In 1965, Peter opened his first Professional Commercial Colour Lab in Dallas, TX, Chromatek and was an instant success. For the next four decades, he founded two other colour labs. In the late 1990s, the era of the commercial lab rapidly came to an end with the advent of digital photography. Peter then moved to Las Vegas and ran a very successful wedding lab.

In the mid 1980s he created a specialty division of his main Atlanta lab, Chestnut Colour Inc. Being a scuba diver himself, he realized the frustrations of his fellow divers when they had their photos processed. He felt that the only way to properly print underwater photos was to be a diver yourself and have access to a first class lab. Having both, he started Blue Water Photo, a specialty lab which still exists today.

To spread the word about his new lab, Peter started sending out photo news clips to prospective customers. He did get a considerable amount of work from his prospects, but even more intriguing was the requests for larger articles about photographic products. This inspired Peter to begin writing a monthly newsletter on a variety of subjects relating to photography and in particular underwater photography. Soon Peter had a sizable list of paying subscribers. These newsletters were sent out to many countries every month for several years. By the turn of the century, digital photography had taken such a serious hold on the photo world, that the newsletter became obsolete. Peter felt that it was nigh onto impossible to put out a newsletter that wouldn’t be ‘yesterday’s news’ a few days after it was sent.

Being well established now in Las Vegas, Peter began to write “Sea Fox with Attila.” This became a labour of love for a few years. Peter has a sequel to “Sea Fox with Attila” which he is working on now and hopes to finish before year’s end. Peter enjoys scuba diving, gardening, photography and really loves to write.
