Tämä arvostelu kirjoitettiin LibraryThingin Varhaisia arvostelijoita varten.This was an incredibly eye-opening, moving historical novel. The history books talk a lot about WWII from the perspective of Pearl Harbour, but I had (perhaps embarrassingly) never heard of the Bataan Death March and the fighting in the Philippines. It was definitely not easy to read - very graphic, upsetting topics are portrayed, as one would expect - but I think this was a very important read. I learned a lot and really appreciate the author shedding light on this dark time in history. 5 stars. ( )
Tämä arvostelu kirjoitettiin LibraryThingin Varhaisia arvostelijoita varten.I enjoyed this book very much. The author wrote in such a way that I felt like I was experiencing the events as they were taking place. It was a good book and I would recommend it.
This book is based on a series of true stories. It tells the story of friends who joined the military to find a better life. After joining, things seemed to be ok but when the war really started to ramp up they saw more than they ever thought that they ever expected. The friends stuck together and worked at helping each other to survive in more ways than one. The horrors they saw and things they had to endure could only happen with the help of each other.
I was aware of many of the things that went on during WWII but it is always interesting to see it from a first person point of view. A story you will definitely want to schedule time to finish
I recommend having lots of tissues available when reading this story. I loved that this WWll story takes place in the South Pacific and I learned a lot of history that I had never known before. I loved Jimmy, Hank and Billy. I loved how this story was told. I received a copy of the book from the publisher for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.
This is such a powerful story, but the subject is one that I knew little about before reading this book. I've long known about Pearl Harbor and America's involvement in WWII, but I was totally ignorant about the largest surrender of American troops in history, on the Bataan Peninsula, and the Bataan Death March that followed. Thankfully, two respected authors decided that a story needed to be told, and the results of their collaboration are pure magic!
Authors Marcus Brotherton and Tosca Lee use a dual timeline plot in The Long March Home. The present-day story revolves around the sacrificial war efforts of three friends from Alabama, and the past story relates the happenings that led them to this service. Three young men with different dreams and a strong female character with ties to them all were forever changed by choices that were made in Mobile, Alabama! The Long March Home is an emotional narrative of friendship, young love, and the discovery that the right choices aren't always obvious. It's also a touching chronicle of the pain and hardships that these soldiers endured during battle, their experiences as prisoners of war, and their valiant efforts to return to the life they'd left behind. Many of the war scenes are painful to read but they're needed to remind all of us about the high cost of freedom. I highly recommend this riveting war story to all who enjoy historical fiction!
I received a copy of this book from the publisher. There was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts.
