Recommends it for: anyone

THE PRICE PAID is a harrowing story fictionalized from the few stories of a World War II veteran as told to his two sons, Ron and Bruce, and brother-in-law Bob Lewis. GW flew a hellcat off the Hornet, but one day, didn't make it back. He spent four days and three nights in the Pacific before washing up on a Japanese island where he remained a POW until the war ended in '45.

But THE PRICE PAID isn't all about the war, it's about the life of a man, his history, the love of his life, and the price
