    One of the great untold stories of World War II finally comes to light in this thrilling account of the members of Torpedo Squadron Eight and their heroic efforts in helping an outmatched U.S. fleet win critical victories at Midway and Guadalcanal. These 35 American men - many flying outmoded aircraft - changed the course of history, going on to become the war's most decorated naval air squadron, while suffering the heaviest losses in U.S. naval aviation history.

    Story

    This story should be part of every 8th, 9th grade cirriculum in America, not to support the agony of war, rather to glimpse an understanding of the words " honor the sacrifice ". Well written and narrated ( I have known Navy men; this sounds like one ), A Dawn Like Thunder assigns the reader a place in the Squadron, and one is compelled to participate.

    Being a veteran of foriegn war(s), I can attest to the diploima of combat; All life is sacred. This book will help show why. Highly reccommend.

    The Millionaires' Unit is the story of a gilded generation of young men from the zenith of privilege: a Rockerfeller; the son of the head of the Union Pacific Railroad; several who counted friends and relatives among presidents and statesmen of the day. They had it all and, remarkably by modern standards, they were prepared to risk it all to fight a distant war in France.

    Story

    The little country that amost wasn't...The Millionaires Unit helps us remember the values that made America in the first place. Feeling a responsibility borne of circumstance, just being Ameican should make one feel as though they owe the world something. This book shows why we have a place at the table in the first place, and why it is our responsibility to occupy it. Uniquely qualified to contribute, these Men of Boys take us all to the air in this Devil May Care tribute to youth, ideal, and purpose.
