    DOWNLOAD ↠ They Were Expendable They Were ExpendableThe movie was betterThe writing style is a very linear extrapolation of the events that MTB Suadron 3 experienced during the early part of the US involvement in the Second World War As it is portrayed as a factual account of the experiences of this action the tone of the book propagandizes these events In the context of the time frame in which the book was written this is understandable but to a reader in current times that does not understand this context the book would appear wooden and 2 dimensionalIt is however an interesting book if one did some research and gained a broader context in which this book was writtenhttpbooksgooglecabooksidUEEEARecommend looking up John D Bulkeley as his life is very interestingRecommend At Close uarters by John D Bulkeley

    DOWNLOAD ↠ They Were Expendable They Were ExpendableI read the 1942 edition fourth printingIn my opinion this is the best non fiction book to come out of World War Two It is one of the finest books ever written about war This is the third time I have read this book and each time I have looked at it in a different wayWhen I was a teenager it helped me understand my parent's view of WW II and the world after that momentous time period In my twenties during my seven years in the military I saw a group of young fighters getting Gen MacArthur off the Phillipine Islands against overwhelming oddsAnd now in my sixties I see it in so many ways as a testimony against war This is a brilliant piece of writingWhen you read this book you will be introduced to the nurse Peggy Taped to the inside cover of the edition I read from the library was a newspaper clipping explaining that Peggy had returned h

    DOWNLOAD ↠ They Were Expendable They Were ExpendableBecause we little guys the ones who are expended never get to see the broad picture of the war never find out the reasons back of the moves or failures to move We only see our part look up through the palm trees at the seamy side of it This account some of the Philippine theater of World War II is a book without a chapter similar to what war holds for its participants An endless series of episodes that occur without warning with time at its heels Even the word expendable carries the connotation of loss and sympathy toward all the soldiers who did the majority of dirty war to help win the war most without any recognition except for the honor and chance of returning home to America alive This book carries dignity and humility for both those involved and for the reader

    DOWNLOAD ↠ They Were Expendable They Were ExpendableNot sure exactly what to think about this book on the surface it's a straight forward as told to account of the PT boat action portrayed so well and so famously by the movie of the same name At times I wondered if perhaps the book had been fictionalized not sure Whatever it's a good tale and taken as a factual account of very difficult times worth the

    DOWNLOAD ↠ They Were Expendable They Were ExpendableHighly engaging and personal narrative about a seldom learned about episode in the USA's WWII history I enjoyed the device of entirely first person narrative from some major heavyweights in the fight The point of view however was not always clear and this made for some confused reading by me as I tried to discern who was speaking where and when and with whom about what I recommend this for an AP US History supplemental reading and also for the general history reading hobbyist
