Comments: I have enjoyed the Commander's books for many years. In fact, he has sparked my love of history through his yarns. Often when the conversation around the water cooler turns to great men of the last century, particularly WWII history, I love to regale my co-workers of a little known Naval Salvage Man, without who's perserverence, the D-day invasion would not have been happened as it did. I often give the Commander's books as gifts and encourage my children to enjoy history through his written word.

Comments: Became a reader of Aniral Ellsber's books as a teenager (60 years ago) and have treasured copies I have in my library. His courage and resourcefulness are an inspiration.

Comments: Ted, this is my first visit to this site and I have loved reading the available materials. He was always an enigma to me as a very young person. I knew he was important and had done some unusual things, so as I got older I have learned more about his experiences. Great you could do this for his memory. Speaking of which I recall coming to your place on the Manset shore when we were very young and playing for the day. Your mom had corned beef hash with lunch and I loved it so much my mother called her to ask what was the special item. It became our house favorite and when moving to Canada in the '70's I brought a case with us. best regards, Chip

Comments: I finally obtained a copy of "Salvage Man". My father had all the books of Admiral Ellsberg when I was a kid and I remember reading them with both my brothers and being thrilled by his adventures. As I am 54 years old now I guess I constitute the second generation who appreciated the maverick genius that he was. Though I never served in the navy (10 years in the army engineers instead) many was the time I would hark back to his tales of hard work and perseverance to keep myself going at a hard task. I am opening the new book of his life now with great anticipation. Thanks to the author and grandson for their efforts!

Comments: Reading "Ordeal by water" (for the second time after a long lapse) by Peter Keeble who mentions Capt. Ellsberg on page 52. This sparked my interest. I will certainly be reading the Captain's books. Thanks for your site! Graham Harker

Comments: Found the book 'Under the Red Sea Sun' and have enjoyed reading it greatly and am looking forward to 'dredging' out of the dusty bookshelves his other books. What an inspiration he is!
