Inhaltsangabe: ?A Swift and Deadly Maelstrom? is the true story of a horrible tragedy borne out of ignorance and complacency. It is also the story, conversely, of life saving heroics, of the efforts of two young men, suddenly trapped in the ensuing floodwaters, to rescue three very young children, those that would tragically lose their mother in this disaster. Also, it is the fascinating account of how this family would pull itself back together and how the children?s father and one of that evening?s heroes would subsequently and slowly fall apart emotionally and physically over his lifetime. All of this is juxtaposed onto the real time reportage of how the town would also recover and how the families of the six people who would ultimately succumb to the raging dam break were unfairly and unjustly recompensed in the follow up litigation.
Über den Autor: Thomas Moody Jr. is one of the young children who experienced the 'Great Norwich Flood' first hand and who tragically lost his mother that horrific evening of March 6th 1963. He provides now, for the first time, a revealing history of this catastrophic event and with the benefit of nearly a lifetime of assorted saved and newly discovered documentation along with numerous first person intimate conversations with family members and other key participants, Moody becomes, with this work, the de facto purveyor of the story. He is currently a nuclear power plant supervisor and lives in Texas with his wife D’Ann and children Brooklyn and Evan.
