Summary

One of the famous Doolittle Raiders who first attacked Japan after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Jacob DeShazer (1912-2008) knew this one-way mission was dangerous. Indeed, it led to his capture as a prisoner of war. Beaten, malnourished, and alone in his cell, Jacob was given a Bible - and far away from home, this American soldier became a Christian.

Encouraging example for us

Both a good war adventure story and account of God's working in lives lived for the gospel.

Another Awesome Biography of a Christian Hero!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would, and I have! What a motivating and inspiring story of faith! Even when you think things couldn't get worse...God has a plan--hang in there! In his story, you wouldn't think he'd survive the prison camps, but he does and goes on to do wonderful things for the Lord! So, no matter how things may look, remember the Lord isn't finished!

I especially love this story!

My father was a POW during WWII. He was in the Bataan Death March and imprisoned in the Philippines, Japan and Korea. It was wonderful to hear that God helped Jacob turn his hate into great love for the Japanese. I have always heard most of my adult life that the call went out for missionaries for Japan after WWII. But, I hadn't heard, until now that there were missionaries that answered the call. Thanks for writing this book.
