"Undaunted: Five True Stories from World War II" is a brief collection of short stories of heroes from World War II who served in the U.S. Army, the U.S. Army Air Corps, the U.S. Marines, and the U.S. Merchant Marines. These stories are from both theaters – European and Pacific – and they span the length of the war. First we meet a young artillery officer who devises a plan to keep the Japanese at bay while besieged in the Philippines. Then we walk beside a soldier who loses his leg after the infamous Bataan Death March. Next we leap from a crippled plane with a bombardier in the skies over Nazi-occupied France, then sail with a Merchant Seaman through the U-boat infested waters of the Mediterranean, and finally stand with an awestruck Marine in the middle of downtown Nagasaki. "Undaunted: Five True Stories from World War II" adds the tales of these courageous men to the historic record of American bravery and sacrifice during World War II.
