In the new biography,
868, author, Tina Farrell, Ed.D., put pen to paper to detail her father’s
heroic life from his birth on a farmhouse table, through the Great Depression,
to his service beginning in the Civilian Conservation Corps to the Army Air
Corps in the Philippine Islands and Japan, culminating with the final chapter
with his humble words of wisdom to today's readers. Details of the emotions,
fear, and faith are graphically described as he is captured and enslaved as an
American Prisoner of War of the Japanese during WWII. Covered in his mother's
prayers and his sharecropper father's country smarts; he survives 40 months of
brutality, captivity, and eight days on a sea voyage in the belly of a Japanese
"Hell Ship". Details and descriptions of each of the nine locations
where he was interred are sharply described. Chronicled are his twenty-five
miraculous events, including surviving a large shrapnel blow to the head,
spinal meningitis, malaria, multiple beatings, and brutal torture. 868 is a
book about faith and courage and is a must-read for anyone wanting a witness to
the covering of God's mighty hand. Anyone interested in WWII history will
appreciate the details, conversations, and descriptions of the personal
accounting of the POW experience and WWII in the Pacific Theater.
