McCabe Stories

Troops advancing ground zero.

My name is John McCabe. I have been writing short stories for over 50 years about my life in and around Philadelphia, and recently completed my first novel, "The Sanctity of Remembering" (see prologue section).  It deals with the human experiences in Hiroshima and Nagasaki when those cities were destroyed in 1945 by atomic bombs. It is told by an Atomic Veteran of four atomic bomb tests where U. S. infantry troops were directly exposed to the same blasts.
