Title
The Ghost Mountain Boys
Author
James Campbell
Review
I just finished listening to this book and found it fascinating. If you like to read about how people overcome adversity this is the book for you. This book is about a division of National Guard soldiers who with little training in jungle warfare or equipment had to cross the Owen Stanley mountains and then attach the Japanese. The area they battle took place was the swamps and jungle of New Guinea. They had to do this in many cases with only rifles, automatic weapons and grenades.
This book also paints MacArthur in a not very favorable light. It contrasts this battle with the battle of Guadalcanal.
Mr. Campbell grasp your attention from the beginning and never lets go of it. He interweaves the battle narrative with background information on many of the participates, both American and Japanese.
I would recommend this book to Adults and Teens.  Reserve a copy!

Author

Review
I picked up this book to encourage my 10 year old son to read for the summer reading log. He is very choosy over the books he will read and rather reluctant to read over playing on the computer or playstation. I gave him this book to read and once he started it he had difficulty putting the book down until he had finished the book in its entirety. Now my other kids are reading it and enjoying it also.  Reserve a copy!
