Hampton Sides' award winning debut nonfiction from 2002. It's the story of the the greatest wartime rescue in American history. In January, 1945, in Cabanatuan, Philippines a combined force of Filipino guerillas, US Army Rangers and Alamo Scouts surprised and fought off the Japanese to rescue 500 POWs, some of the last survivors of the Bataan Death March. Well researched & reported. Great read.

Good read about the history of Pearl Harbor and the blame game after it.

I was overall impressed with Mattis‘ conviction and dedication to the marines. It was especially moving to hear of his concern for the troops and how he could disagree with certain decisions but still respect their authority & them as people. I think a lot of people could learn from this great example!

The author did such a fantastic job making the genuineness of these men be felt through the pages. Their losses felt personal and their anger justified. I ended up loving them all a bit ❤️🤍💙

🎧 MATCH GAME - Expeditionary Force, book 14! It‘s currently not in the Litsy database.

ALL THE STARS! I love Skippy! AWESOME audiobook! Bought the paperback too. RC Bray‘s bloopers at the end assure you of that one last laugh. Another great action adventure addition to this series. I find myself smiling when characters from previous books show up & are fleshed out a bit more. Hilarious space opera! This is 1 of my guilty pleasures.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I have now finished “Leadership Strategy and Tactics” by Jocko Willink. This book has helped me a lot with being more vocal about my opinion when it comes to getting things done; as well showing how hardwork can get anything done. I found that in the start of the book Jocko talked more about his own personal military stories, which I really enjoyed. However, as the book progressed on he talked more on the business and economic side of leadership.

noah.Kinniburgh This is still good knowledge but as a person who is not a ceo, I did not find it that interesting. If you like books that help you over come your challenges and tell you ways to come outside your comfort zone then this book is for you. The theme present in this novel is leadership and business as well as a narrator/ first person POV. 2w
MissYaremcio Thank you for the review Noah! I'm glad you were able to learn something from it! I was just wanting more on how the POV is established. 5/6 2w
