Grey Wolf - A Novel In History

Progress is being made!

February 19, 2012
Hi Everyone! I'm pleased to announce that I'm making headway on the sequel to Grey Wolf. The new title is about a third of the way done (I know it's taken a long time to get to this point, but the research is the hard part and I'm onto the writting phase now).

I hope to have this second work done by the end of summer. I have no agent and no main stream publisher to help, (But I'm always looking!) so it's all on me. For those of you who've been waiting, I'm sorry it's taking so long, but I'm sure you'll be thrilled with the next installment.

To everyone who has supported Grey Wolf up until now, I give my heartfelt thanks!

Look for more updates, soon! D. H.

Latest Review Is In!

July 18, 2010
Hi everyone! The latest review for Grey Wolf is from Mr. B. Cox of the Military Writers Society of America. Here's what he had to say:

"This was a very enjoyable read – historical fiction is a good way to learn about little known aspects of momentous events.  Most of the events described in this book were taken from actual German war diaries. I was already interested in U-Boat warfare before I read this book, so I was an eager audience. Having said that, I highly recommend this gem of a read...

Hi Everyone. Below are three reviews GW received during the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award competition. I would like to thank the three reviewers for their kind remarks.

Bruce D. Aiken:


I have read many books on naval history especially in the Pacific theater during the WWII era including "Pig Boats", books on Pearl Harbor and many of the operations that involved U-boats. This book is an excellent read. It flows well, the characters are well developed, and although it is fictional, it ...

The Latest Review

February 13, 2010
Here is the latest review posted on Amazon. I am flattered and humbled. Thanks very much, Ed.

Re-post: During the early years of WWII, the United States had only used submarines for coastal defenses. It took the Germans to prove the value of the submarine for attack purposes. Dave Huffman's book, "Grey Wolf" is intensely entertaining, combining historical context in an extraordinary novel of the events surrounding the German U-boat Command during the first days of WWII.

The author has obviousl...

A review on Amazon

February 6, 2010
I received a very kind review on my listing page at I have copied it here, without permission from the author. :

"Although the kindle edition has some minor formatting and typos, this is an excellent book. I am no expert but the author seemed to be well versed on the subject and put together a novel which holds your interest. You cant beat the price. There are some real minor issues such as a few typos ( used new instead of knew a lot) and it is justified on several sections to the...
