After being wounded at the bloody battle of Tarawa in 1943, Captain Josh Thurlow is shanghaied by a determined Irish nun into a private war of her own with a crazed Japanese commander. Struggling to get back to the "real war," he finds himself in a different kind of battle, one he could never have imagined back home. Mark Deakins's narration pulses with all the excitement and tension of a war story that alternates between the war's viciousness and the complex human dramas it creates. Without slipping into stereotypes, he captures the rich voices of a full range of characters--from Sister Kathleen's thick Irish brogue to the rough pidgin of the island natives. This is a picture of the Pacific Theater never before seen. P.E.F. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
