Summary
The extraordinary, real-life adventure of three brothers at the center of the most dramatic turning points of World War II and their mad race to change history--and save one of their own. It is the story, written with intimate, novelistic detail, of an ordinary young man who shows extraordinary courage as the Japanese do everything short of killing him. And it is, above all, a story of brotherly love: of three men finding their loyalty to each other tested under the tortures of war--and knowing that their success or failure to save their youngest brother will shape their family forever.
Summary
Documents the extraordinary story of three brothers in World War II who found themselves at the epicenter of three of the war's most crucial moments, describing the rescue mission launched by the elder two when their youngest brother was declared missing in action in the Philippines. A first book
