Edmonds resident Lisle Rose was awarded an honorable mention by the North American Society for Oceanic History in the 2016 Lyman Awards in U.S. Naval History for the book “America’s Sailors in the Great War: Seas, Skies, and Submarines.”

Published by the University of Missouri Press in 2016, the book describes how the Navy and Army worked together in World War I to wage war in the air, in the ocean and on the open seas.

For the two million American Doughboys who turned the tide of battle in 1917-18, the horror of the trenches was preceded by the terror of the seas.

Rose has a doctorate in American history from the University of California, Berkeley, and is the author of 13 books, including six published by the University of Missouri Press.

He has worked as a sailor, a professor, a diplomat, and a court-appointed special advocate for at-risk children.
