Fantastic story from WWII that shows why America fought the Japanese, the intense will to survive for POWS and why dropping the atomic bombs saved many American and Japanese lives. Great history, but the greatest part of the book is how God is the real hero and how he can change and restore lives.
I have not read the print version but the audio edition, with Edward Hermann's narration was really good.
The description of the end of war - very vivid description that had me visualizing the pallets of food, candies, and magazines falling in rice paddies.
The fastest mile - the apparent nonchalance of Luis at the end.
Luis' and Phil's ability to forgive Mac for eating all their provisions on the first night of their ordeal and his death.
I learned a great deal from this book. Especially about the treatment of the P.O.Ws that were held by the Japanese. Of course Louie's sorry is very hear reverting, but I was glad that the author chose to include the other heroes as well as Louie. Bey Well written and presented.
Hey I'm Brad and Audio books are awesome!
Highly recommended. This is a true story that every man and woman should hear. Very touching and sobering. Brought me to tears a few times to be honest.
Very well performed too.
