  1. I would recommend "Rescue At Los Banos." by Bruce Henderson It is a factual, well researched book detailing the liberation of a Japanese POW camp located in the Philippines, that was chock full of heroism and human interest stories recounting a true story, but until now, little known event at the close of the WWII.You will find it hard to put down.
  2. Willy:i I for one have bought all Mr. Angola's volumes and I would not hesitate to recommend to you to consider some rethinking by purchasing these beautiful and well researched volumes. You don't have to take my word for it. Just read some of the testimonials of other readers who "chanced" to buy these books and the satisfaction expressed by all. Not only do these terrific volumes tell and depict his story supported by vivid photos and intelligent verbiage, but they are splendid additions to any collector's bookshelf; including mine. I would assume Mr. Angola would be happy to cooperate with
  3. I have just received a recently released copy of RESCUE AT LOS BANOS by Bruce Henderson. This book details the extraordinary rescue of American nurses, doctors and soldiers held captives by the Japanese at Los Banos in 1945. Mr. Henderson is the author of several WW II books including DOWN TO THE SEA among other successes. If his new book RESCUE AT LOS BANOS is as interesting and as well researched as that of the former, it should turn out to be an exceptional read. I would be interested to know if members are aware of this new released book or if any members of this forum have this book on t
  4. I have just received a recently released copy of RESCUE AT LOS BANOS by Bruce Henderson. Mr. Henderson, author of several WW II books including DOWN TO THE SEA detailing the plights of DD's and DE's caught in "Halsey' Hurricane." If this book is as interesting and as well researched as the former, it should turn out to be an exceptional read. I would be interested to know if any members of this forum has this book on their schedule to read.
  5. Amazon got a little richer thanks to this forum. Three volumes of Keller's books and De Bree's tome are now on their way to me. I have many WW II patches, always interested in more about the, Thank you gentlemen for sharing your expertise.
  6. Can you tell me what the titles are of these books? I did a search under "keller books" and got no where. I have numerous patch books including Pete Morgan's but I don't think I have the "Keller Books." Thanks for your aid.
  7. As a collector of WW II patches, can Thor996 tell me the names of the three volumes to which he cites? Thank you.
  8. Thanks for the tip PJK. I just read your most informative explanation of Patton's unfortunate accident and eventual death. I can not understand how anyone can derive any other conclusion but the one your research has revealed. I can only surmise O'Reilly took a documented historical event of a major figure, in order to create another best seller, and amassed a mountain of circumstantial evidence to build a fictional case in order to sell books. I have to tell you, you saved me $20.00 or so dollars and I thank you. I will digest your conclusion and leave it there.
  9. Jack: I received my copy of Vol II today and upon thumbing through, a splendid, glorious and magnificent new world opened up. It sure graces the Vol I and arguably surpasses its predecessor. Can't wait to hear from you when Vol III comes available.Congrats and good luck.
  10. Jack: When should I send the check and has your address changed?
  11. I will check it out having used Lulu before. Thanks.
  12. I appreciate your taking the time to write a concise and lucid review of a book about this oft written historical day, D-Day. I was weaned on The Longest Day by Cornelius Ryan. I have several of Beevor's books including this title. And thanks to your articulate review, I shall eagerly look forward to reading it. Thank you.
  13. Jack: Sorry for my tardy reply but I temporarily lost the website. But I am back and pleased to tell you to add me to the list of those interested in purchasing volume II adding to the vol I already gracing my shelves. In today's world, delays are often the norm.
  14. Thanks to your pointing out this book BOMB's AWAY,I have a copy on its way to me and it was very inexpensive.. I know this book is not to be confused with John Steinbeck's version BOMBS AWAY that was written in 1942 which I possess as well..
