At 0530 on December 7, 1941, Chief Boatswain Edwin Hill was roused from his bunk aboard the USS Nevada. As he prepared for his day, Hill anticipated nothing more than the usual quiet Sunday. A short time later during the hoisting of the American Flag, as a droning sound became more prevalent in the skies overhead, Hill's world would change forever.


This fascinating biography begins by detailing Hill's Irish roots in Cape May, New Jersey, the country's first seaside resort. Hill embarked on a unique coming-of-age journey while living at the renowned Windsor Hotel. While the biography chronologically leads others through Hill's experiences; his eventual meeting with his wife in Ireland during World War I, their family life in Philadelphia and Long Beach, California, as World War II loomed, and how Hill transformed into a true hero. He dove into boiling, oil-covered water to free the USS Nevada from her berth and then swam back to his ship while it was underway. The USS Nevada was the only ship to sortie that day due to Hill's brave actions.


Undeterred is the true story of a Congressional Medal of Honor recipient who made the ultimate sacrifice, giving his life to save many others.
