5.0 out of 5 stars Have to Read!, July 22, 2010

This review is from: Escape From Davao: The Forgotten Story of the Most Daring Prison Break of the Pacific War (Hardcover)
John Lukacs' book Escape From Davao is an extremely well researched and extraoridarily well written account of the most amazing POW escape in WWII. The successful mass escape from a Japanese prison camp brought the first word of the death marches in the Philippines, but the story gets really interesting when Roosevelt orders the death march news held secret.

The escaped prisoners went on to continue to serve during WWII, with some of them losing their lives in later combat, and one becoming a German POW - just amazing.

Lukacs' book provides an excellent view of a long neglected event in WWII. If you are a student of WWII or military history, this is a "must read."

I want to download not purchase. Why don't they make it easier? It's a hassle!
