    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"

    Overall

    This is a great book,and I'm enjoying the listen. The author describes conditions of the Pacific war accurately and in detail.

    There are two concerns that I have with the reading of the book: 1. Pronounciation of the Eastern Washington town, Ephrata. In the east (I believe there's one in PA) it's pronounced "eff-rat-a",as pronounced on the recording. However, in Washington it's pronounced "ee-fray-tuh. 2. The author referred to Pappy Boyanton as the "winner" of the Congressional Medal of Honor (MOH). Those who wear the MOH are referred to as "recipients"...they did not "win" the award...it wasn't a contest.
