Gentlemen:

I'd like to bring to your attention my new book: American Warriors: Five Presidents in the Pacific Theater of World War II. The book (ISBN 1-57249-307-0) is now available from Amazon.com or from my publisher White Mane.

I cover the Lae raid in some depth with interviews of 22nd BG, 19th BG and 35th Fighter Group veterans. Lyndon Johnson was an observer on the Heckling Hare which was forced to turn back due to engine trouble. Curran Jones recounts his shooting down of Japanese ace Satoshi Yashino.

Lt. Willis Bench's B26 was lost off Salamaua.
