    I stumbled across Taylor's book while doing some research It's a very readable record as to the real events of the late 1941 battle on Wake Island and fleshes out some of the known events from the 1942 movie Wake Island The story of Taylor's subseuent incarceration in China is a lengthy and his final escape from the Japanese a riveting ending

    Bill Taylor is my uncle so I had heard his story verbally many times but really enjoyed getting the full version in the book It was such a harrowing amazing experience he had that affected the rest of his life It is a riveting story He was truly a great man The publisher did a horrible job of marketing this book and Bill's widow my aunt ended up with a lot of unsold books so I made a website to help her sell them If you are interested in a copy you can contact me or look for seller imaghotmailcom at

    The writing is a little rough in this book; he repeats himself in a few spots but the story is incredible and true My uncle Paul in Las Vegas knows the author and recommended it to me Also Beth read it and liked it It's personal history so of course I loved it too The author's wife is a Nay cousin of ours Although Mao's name is in the title his part in Bill's rescue is very minor but the Communist Chinese are the ones who help him get out of the POW camp

    If I could give this 3 12 stars I would I thought it was a great story and I found Taylor's views on Mao very interesting especially considering the butcher that Mao turned out to be Still he had an amazing experience It was not very well written but I admire his faith and perserverance throughout his ordeal

    The actual escape was interesting It's worth reading as so many of our WWII veterans are passing away each year This man was a civilian however in a Japanese POW camp This book reads a little too much like an old man's ramblings so that's that's my one caveat he repeats detailssayings a little often A better editor would've made this a better book

    Great story of a man who overcame so much and has lived a remarkable life The book reads as if it has been dictated and then typed by a third party but this should not detracted from this true story

    In honor of Memorial Day today I want to recommend this book It's an incredible story of a US civilian captured and placed in a Japanese prison camp on mainland China and how he escapes It's an unbelievible story that reminds me of another amazing story of survial Unbroken

    Since the author is my husband's uncle we have a vested interest in the story I have heard if for the last 40 years so it was very informative to hear it all together with all the details

    This book is written by Josh's step grandpa the first part is a bit tedious but the story after he becomes a POW is fascinating
