Book Review of
This acclaimed bestseller brilliantly illuminates a hidden piece of World War II history as it tells the harrowing true story of nine American airmen shot down in the Pacific. One of them, George H. W. Bush, was miraculously rescued. What happened to the other eight remained a secret for almost 60 years.
After the war, the American and Japanese governments conspired to cover up the shocking truth, and not even the families of the airmen were informed of what happened to their sons. Their fate remained a mystery–until now.
FLYBOYS is a tale of courage and daring, of war and death, of men and hope. It will make you proud and it will break your heart.
This was an excellent read, rough, but excellent. There are very graphic descriptions of killing and the dead. The Rape of China is described and it discusses how the Japanese treated the Chinese women, children, and men. It also goes into detail on how the Japanese treated the Americans and what happened to the Americans who crashed on Chichi Jima. This book also goes into the history of the men who flew during World War II. This book has a lot of graphic content that shows what war is really like, but it was a good read.
