This is a new hardcover with dust jacket. In this book the author returns to WWll and an extraordinary and totally unknown true story of courage. Over the remote Pacific Islands of Chichi Jima nine American flyers, Navy and Marine airmen, sent to bomb Japanese communication towers, were shot down. One was rescued by a Navy submarine and the others captured by the Japanese and help prisoner. Then they disappeared. When the war was over the American and Japanese government covered up everything that had happened. The records of the top secret mission were sealed and the families of the missing airmen were left to suffer and wonder. This book reveals the extraordinary story of the men. This is a story of war and horror, but also of friendship. It is about how we die and how we live. It includes the tale of one FlyBoy who escaped, a young Navy pilot named George H.W. Bush. It took yrs to research and reveal the story and for the first time it is told in this remarkable book.
