McCabe Stories


My name is John A. 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 AUGUST WE ARE REMEMBERING".


The novel 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.
