The Last Ring Home (also the name of the PBS documentary film) is a WWII award-winning biography about Lt N. Minter Dial (USN) and his Annapolis Naval Academy ring that miraculously made its way home 17 years after he was killed as a POW of the Japanese in WWII. 

The book and film are a tribute to Lt Dial (the author and producer’s grandfather) and all members of the Greatest Generation. The Last Ring Home is also a journey of self-discovery, having an impact on the author, his wider family and many other people in its wake. This story, which took over 25 years of research, illustrates the importance of serendipity and the roles of good and bad luck in piecing together a personal history of someone who died 70 years ago. The Last Ring Home is to inspire everyone to uncover their own personal history, to keep a foot in their past and the other in the future, and to be thankful for the tremendous present in which we live, courtesy of a generation that sacrificed so much in WWII.

The book, The Last Ring Home, won the Book Excellence Award 2018. See more about the award-winning film here.
