The Long March Home ~ Marcus Brotherton and Tosca Lee

 This book is inspired by true stories of World War II of the Pacific, Historical read.  When three friends, Jimmy, Hank, and Billy, join the Army to get out of Alabama, they never dreamed what would happen to them.  Billy wanted to get out of Alabama and forget about the love of his life, Claire.   When Japan bombs Pearl Harbor, the friends being on Bataan Peninsula make a pack to all return home together.  They are in a war that one of the worst atrocities in history.  Will they be able to survive this 4 year fight?  Can they keep their faith and stay strong, for everything going on around them?  Will Billy find Claire back in his heart and life?  

I would recommend this to those that love to read history books.  If you want a story that will bring tears and tug at your heart, read this one.  This is not my usual read, however, I found myself not able to put this book down.  It is a very real and heart wrenching story that all need to know about.  This is about what Americans sacrificed during this time in our history.  Men and women should read this book, a great tribute to all those people that fought for our country.
