Colonel John J. Koneazny, USA (ret.) is the author of Behind Friendly Lines: Tales From World War II and Tales of the Intercoastal Waterway.


The MOAA said of Behind Friendly Lines: Tales From World War II, “World War II was in full swing and young Koneazny, who was trying to join the Navy, found he had become an Army officer by way of the Merchant Marine. Like many young Americans at the time, he joined up because he was looking for action, and he found it. His circuitous military career took him from the sinful streets of New Orleans to the brothels of Paris. Koneazny's meticulous account of his adventures and misadventures are told through flashbacks that come to him as he and his wife travel through Europe some 45 years later.”

According to the book description of Tales of the Intercoastal Waterway, it “takes you along on the voyages of the Fayaway as they make their trips down the 'Grand Ditch' and beyond. Along with the adventures of Fayaway, Koneazny related experiences of friends and acquaintances he and his wife Dottie met along the 'Way. Read about the sailors that were shipwrecked in a hurricane, then after days floating in the Atlantic Ocean were rescued and thrown in jail in Cuba. Of the man with a pacemaker who fell in the water with an electric drill in his hands. Paralyzed, he floated up and down the river for two days, unable to move while the search parties combed the wrong river looking for him. Fayaway's adventures are a delight to read!”
