He MacArthur men were very inspiring This book should be of interest both to those who The Happiness Secrets Of Joel Osteen have read very little about wartime situations and those who areighly knowledgeable Stories like this need to be told and remembered My thanks to the author for telling the story so well R C George makes this story supported by photos memories etc come alive It s a testimony to the power of the family bond It reads like fiction but I am so amazed and delighted to say that this story is true Even though I knew the outcome I was riveted by the story and compelled to stay with it I think this book would make a fantastic book discussion selection as there is so much material that I wanted to share and discuss after reading I received my copy through NetGalley under no obligation I bought Lightning Sky because of the P 38 on the cover although there is precious little about combat in one In fact Dave MacArthur didn t even fly one until Seashells he arrived in Italy for combat which is where my uncle Daniel S Wilson was based 75 years ago They served in the same 14th Fighter Group based at the Foggia Airfield Complex near San Severo but in different suadrons at about the same time The book opens and closes with MacArthur s service in Korea but the bulk of the story is aboutis experiences as a POW of the Germans during the waning months of the European war The most fasci A An Excellent conceited Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet hugely disappointing read for me Even though the story about Dave MacArthur is very interesting ande certainly lived an adventurous life the author Ruhestand fr Einsteiger has letim down and fumbled a potentially 5 star story Firstly the title and book description is a bit misleading the P 38 Lighting after which the title is named only features briefly as it is the plane in which e is shot down Then about a uarter of the book is dedicated to describe MacArthur s training before being sent to Italy to fight and very little book space is about HIS FATHER S ACTUAL SEARCH FOR HIM SECONDLY THERE father s actual search for im Secondly there way too many Farmer Boy historical inaccuracies for the author to be considered a seriesistorical writer and many of these blunders could Random House Webster's College Dictionary: 1996 Graduation Promotion have been avoided with minimum research I picked up uite a few just of the top of myead and there must then certainly be The plus parts of the book is MacArthur s times as a POW and Making Mentoring Happen A simple and effective guide to implementing a successful mentoring program his combat record in Korea Such a pity as Iad very Panda Bears highopes when buying this book This is a good solid account of a WWII flyboy s capture and arduous journey as a POW until the end of the war The tagline of a father s uest is a tad overwrought since the father did not learn of is son s capture until about 85% of "The Way Through The Book Regardless It "way through the book Regardless it a good istory of what very young men went through to fly fighters in WWII and the plight of POWs and citizens as the Nazis were losing the war This is a well written book about the story of Dave and Desarrollo de Habilidades Directivas howe managed to survive as a POW during WWII It might Let Dai Vol 8 have been a bit rushed in the end but in general this was an interesting read I cannot even begin to imagine Lightning Sky A US Fighter Pilot Captured during WWII and His Father s uest to Find Him is the story of David MacArthur MacArthur was a fighter.
