    Pappy of the Pacific

    This book is the true story of a man named Galen Charles Kittleson and his amazing story though two wars in the pacific. He was both a member of the elite Alamo Scouts during World War II and the Special Forces during the Vietnam War. First known as ¿Kit¿ during his WWII days when he was a young man and later a ¿Pappy¿ when he was a crusty old veteran during Vietnam. Galen was born during the great depression in Iowa and joined the army in 1943. He later joined the Airborne Rangers and was assigned to the 503d Parachute Regiment and later joined the Alamo Scouts. He conducted two raids during WWII. One to free a Dutch family and local tribesmen from a Japanese labor camp and later he participated in a raid to free over 500 prisoners from the Bataan Death March. Later during Vietnam as a part of the Special Forces he attempted a raid to free a single survivor and later he was part of a major operation to free 55 P.O.Ws. Though both the attempted raids during Vietnam were failures this is still a story of an amazing man that had done everything he could to free those imprisoned. This book has a major message of faith. Whether it is Galen¿s own unwavering straight forward gospel to the faith that P.O.Ws had that someone somewhere was looking for them. What I really liked about this book was the detail of the raids and other engagements and the way the writing portrayed Galen¿s personality and actions. What I didn¿t like about the book was that at times the orders of events were hard to follow, especially during the story of how the single P.O.W that Galen tried to rescue was captured. There was no warning that it was a background story and wasn¿t actually happening to Galen. One should read this book because it as an amazing account of the bravery of the American forces to free those who have been captured and mistreated by their captors.
