My father, "Pa" died 13 years ago, I spent my entire life shadowing him; I knew I was loved and I knew I was the favorite; yet there were things about him I didn't know. The part of his life that most shaped Pa was the years he spent on the Pacific Theater during WWII. In an attempt to understand my father to a greater extent, I chose to start reading books concerning the Pacific Theater....'Ghost Soldiers' was my first.......

When most people think of WWII they think of Nazi's, the Holocaust, and Pearl Harbor; but what about the thousands of Americans who fought, were captured and died?...

Ghost Soldiers holds every piece of today's best fictional thriller; but it's a true story; the story of the 'Bataan Death March' life as a POW of the Japanese Imperial Army and the courage group of newly created 'Special Ops' men who liberated the POWs of Cabantuan.

This book tells the story of murder and cruelty; how one group of men literally watch the world move on without them and how one group of men and an impossible mission created what we today know as 'Special -Ops.'

This is a must read book; not only for those who are interested in history, not only for those whose father's spent time on the Pacific Theater, but for everyone! This is more than a true story, this will help everyone understand the men who shaped the leaders who are now shaping the world!
