If I was a 14-year-old-boy, I think I would have loved this book.
I picked it up in a used book store about a year-and-a-half ago when I was looking for books to help me understand the emotional trauma of some of my patients.It took me a while to get through it because, for one reason, I realized pretty quickly that it was a gee-whiz, hero-worshiping book.
One example jumped out at me: When pilot Robert L. Scott is strafing Japanese troops trapped on a causeway, the incident is described gleefully, with Scott exultant. The same again when Scott strafes Japanese dining at a hotel in Hong Kong.Scott is reported by Caidin to thrill at machine-gunning to death hundreds of human beings.
I contrasted this description in my mind with that of Charles A. Lindbergh in his Diary, when he recounts spotting a single Japanese soldier on a beach, dives to machine-gun him, has his finger on the trigger, the man square in his sights...but chooses not to fire.He can't take the life of another man who is no threat to himself, even if his country demands he do so.
I know that many men enjoy killing, especially when society sanctions it in war, but many don't; I think most.But they do it anyway.Because of duty.Because of peer pressure.Because of...well, sometimes even they don't know why.And this eats at such men.It's a guilt—yes, a guilt, but a very complex one—that never goes away.It's one of the things about war they internalize and do not want to share with anyone.
But it's my job to help them deal with this terrible anguish.At least the best that I can.To do that, I read war books.Usually I ask for recommendations from combat veterans.This one I didn't ask for a recommendation and I'm not sure if it will be useful to me.
I gave it three stars because the stories were unknown to me and surprising, and I am disappointed that these things are not taught to us in school as part of our American heritage.
The stories about the B-26 crews were the best part of the book to me, and seemed the most sincere.
