Michael P. Wood
Military History & Children's Fiction
A former Underwater Demolition Team Frogman and U.S. Navy SEAL of 34 years service, Michael has turned his extensive wartime and operational experiences into military history and biographical stories and photographs that are fun, exciting and uniquely informational.
His first book, U.S. Navy SEALs in San Diego, includes the history of Frogmen and SEALs with commentary and photographs covering World War II, Vietnam, Cold War up until Afghanistan. His second book is Project Quick Find: Memoirs of a U.S. Navy SEAL Training Sea Lions. As #1 New York Times best selling author, Dwight Jon Zimmerman states, "A fascinating insider's account of a little known program created in the 1970s to train sea lions to assist in the retrieval of submerged objects". Michael's children's fiction book series, Sinbad & Papillon Escapades, tells the Project Quick Find story but from fictional sea lion's perspective to engage children's imagination about marine mammals. .
