There is no doubt at all these gentleman were beyond brave, & still as of this day remain the flight crew who have been awarded the highest medals of any combat crew.
So why am I disappointed. Well, the righting is very good as is the narration, but the first half of the book basically outlines the history of the war in the Pacific, I felt that detracts from keeping the focus of these stunningly brave men.
After all the war in the Pacific went on for many years & involves many islands so it seems rushed to try & include the entire history of it in such a short book. The background story is relevant to the main characters stories, but would have much rather the author go into so much more depth about the combat crew as they are the heroes, & the story should be focused more on them.
It could also be that their real feat of staggering bravery is encapsulated in one single stunning mission. So maybe it was just a case of padding the book out a little by including a broad view of the war in the Pacific.
It is good, but I would recommend, "Unbreakable" or "A Higher Call". Those two focus only on the main characters & do not get bogged down with to much overview of the entire war. They are fantastic books & cannot recommend enough.

This is a great story about some truly great men. There is never really a down period in the story so it kept me interested the entire time & then seemed to end way too fast. I will definitely be looking more into this subject. The performance was also very good. I listened to a lot of books that are good & interesting but find myself totally bored with the narration. That was not the case at all with this book.

If you could sum up Lucky 666 in three words, what would they be?
God Bless Them.
Who was your favorite character and why?
My favorite character. The whole crew of course! Why, few generals stood tow to tow with the enemy and in the end who wins wars.
What does Jeremy Bobb bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Jeremy makes me think of the little guy, the guy that won the war. The men and woman that fought or worked for the common goal. PEACE.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Even misfits will fight for peace. Why isn't this a move yet!

IF we could only remember to stop and think before we act. History is the lesson there for us to learn by. But still we just can't get along.
