An American in the Basement

An American in the Basement by Amy Waters Yarsinske,  Click now to get your copy

Winner of the 2014 Next Generation Indie Book Award for General Non-Fiction

The story of navy captain Michael Scott Speicher – the story of betrayal and cover up that cost a man his life – can now be told and it is one that you come to understand is one of history repeating itself. Speicher’s story is – no question - the seminal case in the ongoing saga of America’s prisoners of war and missing in action. An American in the Basement documents what happened to him from beginning to end and reveals for the first time information that has never been told to the American public – information no one was ever meant to find out.
