    Story

    On the morning of October 24, 1944, in the Sibuyan Sea amidst the Philippine Islands, VT-18, a close-knit squadron of six young American torpedo bomber pilots, departed the aircraft carrier USS Intrepid on a search and destroy mission. Their target: the super-battleship Musashi, the pride of the Imperial Japanese Navy. The pilots were tasked with preventing the immense enemy warship and the huge naval armada of which she was a part from inflicting unspeakable damage.

    What did you like best about Intrepid Aviators? What did you like least?

    very very detailed account of a part of the war that we don't hear a lot about. I enjoyed listening even though the account was almost documentary monotone. I stuck with it through the end and was glad that I did.

  • Service: A Navy SEAL at War

    Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell returned from his star-crossed mission in Afghanistan with his bones shattered and his heart broken. So many had given their lives to save him-and he would have readily done the same for them. As he recuperated, he wondered why he and others, from America's founding to today, had been willing to sacrifice everything-including themselves-for the sake of family, nation, and freedom.

    What did you love best about Service?

    I enjoyed this book almost more than the first one. The story doesn't flow quite like lone survivor but the contents are very heartfelt and moving. I have always felt gratitude for our service men and the work they do but this story really takes you into their world and leaves you speechless with emotion for the sacrifices they make. YOU WILL NOT regret this read.
