Raymond "Hap" Halloran was a navigator who parachuted into Tokyo after his B-29 was shot down

Raymond "Hap" Halloran was a navigator who parachuted into Tokyo after his B-29 was shot down. Once on the ground, Halloran was beaten by a mob of civilians, then captured by Japanese authorities, who tortured him, locked him in a pig cage, and held him in a burning horse stall during the firebombings. They stripped him naked and put him on display at Tokyo's Ueno Zoo, tied upright in an empty tiger cage so civilians could gawk at his filthy, sore-encrusted body.

Chester" is a patriotic anthem composed by William Billings and sung during the American Revolutionary War. Billings wrote the first version of the song for his 1770 songbook The New England Psalm Singer. Billings wrote the first version of the song for his 1770 songbook The New England Psalm Singer, and made improvements for the version in his The Singing Master's Assistant (1778). It is the latter version that is best known today. The curious title of the song reflects a common practice of Billings's day, in which tunes were labeled with (often arbitrarily chosen) place names.

JUST TERRIFIC. WHAT OUR AND OUR ALLIES SUFFERED UNDER THE UNBRELLA OF BEING A POW WAS UNBELIEVABLE. ITS TOO BAD MANY MORE JAPANEESE MILITARY WEREN'T BROUGHT UP ON CHARGES AND PUNISHED. MY FATHER WAS AN AVIATOR IN THE PACIFIC THEATER AND MY FATHER IN LAW WAS ON TWO ISLANDS OF ON TINIAN AND SIAPAN IN 1945. HAP DESERVES OUR DEEPEEST GRATITIUDE THAT WE CAN BESTOW ON HIM AS WELL AS MANY OTHERS. HIS BOOK SHOULD BE MADE INTO A MOVIE JUST LIKE SOME OTHERS HAVE BEEN MADE.

All right, right up front, let me say that no veteran of the Pacific War and no one who was deeply moved by it should miss this book! First, Hap, the navigator/bombardier, introduces you to the eleven crew members on his B-29, the Rover Boy, the five that survived the war and the six who didn't. The theme throughout the book is "completing the circle."He completes the circle with his crew. He finds where each is buried and what happened to each that survived. After that he completes the circle with the Japanese people and the mission over Tokyo that he didn't finish because he was shot down. He actually finds one of the "good guards" and a "good interpreter" that he knew when he was a prisoner. He finds the actual fighter pilot who shot him down. Two honorable warriors on opposite sides meeting after the war is always poignant. We, at kilroywashere.org appreciate that he only included the honorable ones. In fact, he says: ". . . I felt at ease being with the families and children and grandchildren of our former enemy. I do not feel that my feelings would be the same had some former despicable guards (Horseface, Watanabe, and several others) appeared in my range of vision." He also does not succumb to the revisionists who claim we were wrong to drop the atomic bomb. He quotes an actual document from the National Archives that proves that the Japanese planned to kill all prisoners. "Had an invasion (of Japan) taken place, every Allied POW of the Japanese would have been killed immediately. We knew that and sweated out each day. The atomic bomb drops on Hiroshima and Nagasaki saved our lives." A great book! Don't miss it.

He was generous and kind enough to assist Lauren Hillenbrand's research for Unbroken.
