PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

APUSH, Dual Credit U.S. History, or any college bound students need practice in reading and understanding non-fiction, especially in this "sound bite" and texting age. Juniors, seniors and freshmen in college call every story book a "novel"; they need practice separating fact from fiction. The challenge is finding non-fiction reads that keep the students on the edges of their seats. James Bradley's "Flyboys" details the horrific treatment of American WWII pilots by the Japanese in the Pacific Theater, treatment that G.H.W. Bush escaped only because of his rescue by the sub USS Finback. The book is easy to find as a download or paperback. For the I-Pod generation, I have found audio downloads beneficial. During group discussions after students read the book, invariably these students, too often jaded by electronic gaming and desensitized by our society, cried at the treatment of our Flyboys, as well as the "survivor guilt" experienced by G.H.W. Bush.
This book grabs the heart and mind.
