GHOST SOLDIERS The Forgotten Epic Story of World War II’s Most Dramatic Mission

by | Read by James Naughton

History • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2001

The "ghost soldiers" referred to in the title are the skeletonized, starved Allied prisoners in a Japanese WWII POW camp, and the story recounts their rescue by an elite U.S. Army battalion. Although the book is mostly description, Naughton makes good use of the dialogue to bring the characters to life with credibility and without flamboyance. The building excitement before the raid on the camp needs no help from the narrator, whose taciturn restraint allows us to keep our attention on their goal. The abridgment seems seamless, allowing a well-trained voice to flow effortlessly to a climax of killing and victory as emotional as any novelist could create.
