The harrowing journey through the jungle is epic and in a lot of ways Tolkien like. There are villains, great kindness, sacrifice, selflessness and triumph at the end but not without sorrow. During WWII, ordinary Americans both in and out of uniform honored God, country and duty. Farm boy ingenuity, native medical knowledge, and a lot of prayers enabled Maj. Humphrey and his men to survive. A sequel would be nice to know what happened to the survivors after the war, especially those that were captured almost immediately and became prisoners of war. This first person account is very well written and it is as if the reader was there. This is a must read for anyone that is a student of history. -Amazon Review
