High praises for Linda Holmes and Naval Institute Press for publishing Roger Mansell's valuable work.   This book belongs in every library that has an American history collection.  It will also be extremely valuable to families of the men who were captured on Guam but who were reluctant to talk about their POW experiences.  B&N was especially helpful to make available the online preview with its searchable database.  Before I purchased the book I found out that my uncle, Edward E. Hale, had been mentioned 14 times!   Roger Mansell had contacted me several years ago requesting permission to quote from my uncle's memoirs, which I had edited and published under the title FIRST CAPTURED, LAST FREED; MEMOIRS OF A P.O.W. IN WORLD WAR II GUAM AND JAPAN.  Mr. Mansell told me he found Ed Hale's book to be like an anchor of reliability, because his detailed first-hand experience was written objectively, without the exaggeration that some other survivors tended to employ.  Even when he was reporting second-hand information, Ed Hale conscientiously reported that it was TOLD TO HIM. That testifies to the integrity of both Mansell and Hale.
