Awesome! Stoked you liked it. I really enjoyed the way the story would go back and forth between the foot soldiers on the ground and the pilots. A lifelong buddy of mines dad was one of those Marines on the ground freezing his ass off fighting the "white coats". Mr Witt, who was my little league coach, earned a Silver Star and a Purple Heart for taking out an enemy machine gun placement that had his unit dialed in and pinned down. Pretty much single handedly saved their bacon. Decided, you guys hang here I'm gonna go sneak up on them and take em out. Bravado or survival instinct? Kinder most humble man I have ever met...I am going to check out Pathfinder.

Something that I've already read, but occasionally revisit...

Reprieve From Hell
by Samuel B. Moody


Sam Moody has recorded in faithful detail the harrowing account of his experiences
as a Prisoner of War of the Japanese Government from the surrender of Bataan until
the Japanese surrender in 1945



Kind of had a personal interest for me ...
... Sam Moody and my father were POW's and
were both survivors of the Bataan Death March.
Very late in my life my father talked of his POW days, but not
near in depth as the book. I also got to meet and speak with Sam Moody.


Very well written and with pictures.
I have two copies...one signed by Sam Moody.
