“Riveting…Rescue at Los Baños opens our eyes to amazing bravery and to military chutzpah in the midst of a greater war…Bruce Henderson builds his narrative by getting deep into the lives of several participants. Heroes all…Readers will be both shocked by the conditions that POWs had to endure and appreciative of the bravery and ingenuity of that generation we have come to call the greatest.”

“Rescue at Los Baños reads like an adventure thriller and sheds new light on one of the most compelling stories of World War II… A story well-told, generously illustrated and well-sourced. Anyone who enjoyed Lauren Hillenbrand’s Unbroken or Mitchell Zuckoff’s Lost in Shangri-La should check this one out.”
— James Barber, Undertheradar.military.com
Thank you for this rave review!

Thrilled with the great review for Rescue at Los Baños in the 11th Airborne Division Association’s magazine, Voice of the Angels.The 11th Airborne were the guys who pulled off the daring raid and freed more than 2,000 men, women and children — most of them Americans — from a Japanese prison camp in the Philippines in 1945.
“Bruce Henderson’s Rescue at Los Baños is a triumph of integrating detailed new research and thrill-ride storytelling, worthy of the men who delivered the real event to the pages of history some seventy short years ago…” Go Airborne!

Started a coast-to-coast 30-city radio tour today to talk about Rescue at Los Baños.
Here’s my interview on “Rochcester’s Good Morning Show” on KROC AM, in Rochester, Minnesota, hosted by Rich Peterson: http://krocam.com/an-unknown-rescue-during-wwii/
