9780997007800: Pow 253: One Man's Quest for Life during World War II

He fought at Wake Island—and survived the brutality of the POW camps

Dare K. Kibble was one of a small number of sailors on Wake Island in 1941, volunteering for refueling duty on what seemed to be a paradise in the South Pacific. He wasn’t a marine or a civilian contractor, nor was he trained for combat—he was a machinist’s mate from the USS Tangier. He manned a Browning .30-caliber machine gun in the final beach defense of Wake Island, and was taken prisoner on December 23, 1941. He survived four years as a POW—in China at the Woosung and Kiangwan camps, and in Japan at the Kawasaki and Niigata camps on Honshu.

This story is an honest, unfiltered look through the eyes of a survivor who found a way to deal with life as a POW. He also shows us a glimpse of what life was like in small town Boise, Idaho and San Francisco in the early 1940s, and how his WW II experiences changed his view of the world and society.

About the Author:

Dare K. Kibble was a Navy war hero and World War II POW. He was a POW from December 1941 to August 1945. Dare married Anne Smith Sund, whom he met the first day he returned to Boise from POW camp. He earned a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in accounting from the University of Idaho, and went to work as a CPA. He loved his family fiercely, loved his outdoors, and his freedom. He believed in the constitution, and why we need the military. He encouraged his sons to join the military, and they did—and so did his grandchildren. He was intensely patriotic. He was known for absolute honesty, and for “calling a spade a spade.” Maggie Kibble Newhouse is the daughter of Dare Keane Kibble. Maggie was born and raised in Boise, Idaho, as were her parents. She learned her love of country from her parents. Her mother was a telephone operator during the war, and was best friends with Dare Keane Kibble’s sister. Maggie is a wife, a grandmother, the mother of four, and a businesswoman. She really does believe her father was a hero, and a lot of people don’t have heroes as parents. She feels privileged to be able to bring this book to life so others will know her father’s story, and understand what he and others who served in WW II did for their country
