Book Review: Shobun (Pacific War)

Title: Shobun
Author: Michael J. Goodwin
ISBN: 0-8117-1518-3
Publisher: Stackpole Books
Stars: 4
(out of 5)
This book is about the execution of American Airmen in the Pacific. The book starts off with who the men were and why the author starts to write the book. The chapters are laid out well in order of the mission, capture, the exection, and the aftermath and trials.
The story is well researched with what happened to the Japanese and how long they staying prison, where the pilots were buried and who gave the order for their execution.
It is an easy read and can be completed in one or two evenings. Pictures of the airmen (all one crew), and some shots of the plane they flew are there.
If you happen to come across it then I do recommend you pick it up.
