The little-known Alamo Scouts were formed by Gen. Douglas MacArthur as an elite unit shortly after defeat in the Philippines in 1942 and charged with gathering intelligence, reporting on conditions in the occupied areas, and rescuing prisoners and hostages from the Japanese. They completed 108 missions behind enemy lines. Alexander (Biggest Brother) has a story-telling style that makes this account, based largely on memoirs and interviews with the now elderly surviving Scouts, an easy read. For those reading comprehensively on the war in the Pacific.
