It's good to finally be back on Goodreads with a good review of a book that I read and loved over the break It started when Nick the main character finished a baseball game in his hometown Detroit when he heard the league was going down due to the start OF WORLD WAR 2 This was big news to him because he had to stop what he loved and fight in the biggest war of the century I love how the book flows and his problems at the military camps This can relate to me in a way because I know so many of my friends who had to move away from their hometown to a new place and that is somewhat like Nicks Experience Definitely recommend to anyoneRate it a 1010

I've tried some many times to give this a 4 star rating but Goodreads keeps it at a one star rating for some glitchy reasonAs much as he loved playing baseball when the Eastern Shore League suspended operations in 1941 for the duration of the war player Nick Nardini could understand why I guess it just seemed suddenly really dumb to have the fittest guys in America playin' ballgames when the rest of the world was out there killing each other in a war that was without a doubt gonna eventually include the USA Nick convinces his best friend and teammate Zachary Kleko to join the marines with him despite the fact that Kleko has a girlfriend and the promise of a job at a plant in Ypsilanti MI manufacturing B 24 Liberators heavy bombers for when the US enters the war Nick's idea is that they will go through basic training and the war on the buddy systemNick and Zach are first sent to Parris Island SC for seven weeks of basic training and then paramarine training at Camp Lejeune NC where they learn to how to parachute jump within 16 weeks Finally after all those gruelling weeks and weeks of training the two friends and the rest of their 650 troop Second Parachute Battalion set sail for the Pacific on an LST Landing Ship Tank carrying supplies including vehicles and ammunition They arrive at the pacific island of Vella Levella recently won back from the Japanese with the help of New Zealand soldiers but the enemy isn't finished there As the men and supplies are disembarking Nick and Zach get their first taste of real fighting attacked from above by enemy dive bombers who finally drop a 500 pound bomb on the LST Their job on Vella Lavella is to protect the airstrip there strategically important for the Allies the battle was fought in 1943 to give you a sense of timeFrom Vella they are sent to Choiseul Island where they encounter 5000 Japanese soldiers to their 650 troops The mission is to divert enemy attention and men so that the Third Marine Division can land at Bourgainville It's a dangerous mission code named Operation Blissful especially because the Second Parachute Battalion will truly be on their own without any backup Naturally after making their slow wet way through the jungle they again encounter the enemy After that there is a lot fighting in store for Nick and his fellow Marines on different islands Eventually though Nick finds himself in a hospital with dengue fever malaria and early stage jungle rot After six weeks he is reunited with his battalion heading for Okinawa and another brutal battle cut short by the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki ending the war in the Pacific theater Their next job is to enter Japan on a POW recovery mission Lynch brings his WWII series full circle when Nick and Zach find Hank McCallum who recognizes Nick from past ballgames Hank you may remember from Dead in the Water Book 2 was on the USS Yorktown when it took a direct hit and sank at Midway Now with the war over these three baseball players are ready to return to civilian life and the game they all love so much After reading and reviewing all the books in this series there isn't much new I can say about them The Liberators is every bit as well written and researched as the other three books The main characters are all minor league baseball players on teams that make up the Eastern Shore Division but they are all so different from each other that they really stand out as individuals Lynch's writing is sharp and has the kind of snappy way of speaking that you find in many movies mad
