    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.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Best historical testament of VT 8 and command performance. Details the average american turned warrior. Not the best equipment, training or leadership. The squadron leaders at the spear end lead by example and combined with the individual warrior won the day.

  • The Winds of War

    Herman Wouk's sweeping epic of World War II stands as the crowning achievement of one of America's most celebrated storytellers. Like no other books about the war, Wouk's spellbinding narrative captures the tide of global events - and all the drama, romance, heroism, and tragedy of World War II - as it immerses us in the lives of a single American family drawn into the very center of the war's maelstrom.

    Would you listen to The Winds of War again? Why?

    Written before the fall of the Soviet Union it interesting to hear some of that old ideology about communism and the Soviet Block states. For those of you under the age of 55 it an interesting introspective of how your parent viewed the world. Remember also that a flood of historical documents have been released from both the Soviet Union and the USA which strengthen arguments for WWII, or at least clarify the reasons.
