The story of four doctors is a superb history of WWII in the Pacific. The book focuses on events ranging from the fall of Bataan to survival as a Japanese prisoner; it is also a tribute to author John Glusman's father, Murray, and three colleagues, who devoted their captivity to saving POWs' lives. Harry Chase reads with an effective low-key style. He is at his best displaying the unbridled hatred the prisoners felt toward the Japanese. Chase is also superb conveying the excitement of the men at war's end, feelings tempered because many comrades had died or were so ill that additional delay could prove fatal. In sum, this title offers a new perspective of WWII. D.J.S. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
