In Bob’s case, it would be more than 30 years before he was reunited with the love of his life - the wife who had left him for a well-bred naval officer after he came back from the war.
By turns panoramic and intimate, No Ordinary Joes shows us, through the lives of four "ordinary" men who endured extraordinary circumstances, the tragedy of war and its aftermath, and the restorative power of love.

Prisoner of War Tale
Larry Cotton is reporting the story of four submariners who were captured by the Japanese and held for two years. Prisoner of war books are not unusual, but his one is very welll researched and brings the reader up to the latter days of their lives. We find out how the four fared as they went through life and about their children. This is an emotional book and I have read a number from this genre. The most interesting portions of the book to me were about how their sub was taken and their later lives. At the end of the book, Colton digresses to reflect on the various life views of each of these men and what it might mean for those of us who remain after them. His insights are instructive. This is well written and the reading of Robert Fass is flawless.
