Ghost Soldiers: The Epic Account of World War II's Greatest Rescue Mission
Why this book?
I was only eight days shy of the Vietnam war draft when it was halted, and it instilled in me profound respect, admiration, and a sense of debt to the brave men and women who answered the call of duty sacrificed in duty to our nation. I'm drawn to historical works, be it historical fiction or nonfiction accounts, of wartime through the ages. My fiance's father was the youngest US Army Ranger during WWII in the story that this book recounts, so reading it brought a special significance to me.
