Left Bank Books welcomes author Sally Mott Freeman, who will sign and discuss her new book, The Jersey Brothers: A Missing Naval Officer in the Pacific and His Family's Quest to Bring Him Home!
A World War II saga like no other, The Jersey Brothers follows two brothers—both Navy men—who embark on a complex rescue mission to save their youngest brother after he finds himself a POW in the Pacific. Based on ten years of research drawn from archives around the world, interviews with fellow shipmates and POWs, and primary sources including diaries, unpublished memoirs, and letters half-forgotten in basements, The Jersey Brothers is a remarkable true story of agony and triumph—from the home front to Roosevelt’s White House, and Pearl Harbor to Midway and Bataan. And it is, above all, a story of brotherly love: of three men finding their loyalty to each other tested under the tortures of war.
“Highly dramatic history. [Freeman’s] book is liable to break the hearts of Unbroken fans, and it’s all true.”
—The New York Times
