This gripping story evidentiallytitled Flyboys by James Bradley depicts the stories of many American pilots who
fought in the Pacific theater during World War 2. The story begins with a
historical account both America’s and Japan’s foreign policies dating back to
the late ninetieth century and leading up to World War 2. The story progresses
into heartwarming tales of childhood for many of these all American boys. With
many accounts and interviews of both sides of the war, this book intends to
have a very pro American aspect with a very simplified vocabulary for young and
old readers.             Ipersonally enjoy reading this book because it puts into accounts many
historical aspects especially, the Rape of Nanking. There are many eye-opening statistical
data, which are normally overlooked in history textbooks. Although the book
covers a lot of historical content, it also contains personal accounts of
inhumanity, cannibalism and the harsh realities of war. This book is not for
the faint heart. This book is very important in understanding both countries’ imperialistic
policies and motives in the world. Japan’s occupation of Korea is often
comparable to the U.S’s occupation of the Philippines. However, both countries
differ in many customs, which only made the intensity of the conflict greater.
I would recommend this book to readers who want an eye-opening view of the War
in the Pacific and a story based on a very important group of boys who flew
valiantly over the tiny but dense islands in those oceans some 70 years ago
