William Doyle’s PT 109 (940.54) Jay Johnston's Review



William Doyle’s PT 109: AN AMERICAN EPIC OF WAR, SURVIVAL, AND THE DESTINY OF JOHN F. KENNEDY.

“I do not remember his name.
I never knew it, but I will always remember him.”

John F. Kennedy




This well written book is driven by a great story supported with notes, sources, appendices, photos, and unpublished narratives. It is captivating as Doyle conveys the misfortune, disorganization, and surprises of combat.  Although we all know the story, the environmental and historic fabric it is woven with is not to be missed. I highly recommend this wonderful Biography.
