“Boomtown, Portsmouth”

Author lecture and book signing by Rodney Watterson


Boomtown, Portsmouth is a fascinating look at how a global war changed one small New England city. There are many subplots within the story: a booming Navy yard; hordes of Immigrant workers; a flood of federal dollars; a burgeoning population, U-Boat threats, blackouts; a raucous liberty town; soaring VD rates, and much more.


After a Naval career steeped in submarine design and engineering, author Captain Rodney K. Watterson (USN Retired) shifted disciplines and earned a PhD in history from the University of NH. In addition to Boomtown, he has written two other books focusing on Portsmouth.
