I just finished reading Flyboys: A True Story of Courage. My girlfriend’s little sister gave it to me for Christmas, which is some indication of how busy I’ve been this year. It’s a fascinating book, and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about WWII. It focuses mainly on captured Navy pilots and their tribulations on the island of Chichi Jima off the coast of Japan. It’s the kind of book that kids should be reading in high school, but sadly, I know they’re not.
