A terrific tale about a little-known (to Americans) battle." - WWII History Magazine World War II, June 2007 "The author takes a grunt's-eye view of not just the battle, but its horrid aftermaths for POWs." "Gamble's first of a trilogy of books is enlightening for the history that has largely been forgotten and it is superbly done." - Travel for Aircraft Read more ( javascript:void(0) ) About the Author ---------------- Bruce Gamble is a retired naval flight officer and a former historian with the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation.
