Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Many years ago I had the honor of knowing a gentleman who was a young worker for Morrison Knudsen on Wake Island when the Japanese invaded. He spent the entire war as a POW. I heard some of the stories, not many because they were stories of cruelty and horror and he had moved on and did not wish to dwell on them. For that reason I had a personal and strong interest in this book. I think it was fairly well written although I wish it were longer and more detailed. I really dislike criticizing the narrator but I felt like it was read without passion or investment. Sort of like listening to someone read a newspaper story out loud. The frequent sibilant on pronouncing everything with an "S" was distracting. I am glad, however, that I listened to the book. There were many hero's in this story. I wish I could have met more of them.
Would you be willing to try another one of Scott Clem’s performances?
Probably not, sorry!
Was The Battle of Wake Island worth the listening time?
Yes, wish it were longer.
