Summary
Over the remote Pacific island of Chichi Jima, nine American flyers--Navy and Marine airmen sent to bomb Japanese communications towers there--were shot down. One of those nine was miraculously rescued by a U.S. Navy submarine. The others were captured by Japanese soldiers on Chichi Jima and held prisoner. Then they disappeared. When the war was over, the American government, along with the Japanese, covered up everything that had happened on Chichi Jima. The records of a top-secret military tribunal were sealed, the lives of the eight Flyboys were erased, and the families and friends they left behind were left to wonder. After almost 60 years of mystery, the story and ultimate fate of each of those eight American Flyboys is now told, as is the story of the rescued ninth Flyboy, a young Navy pilot named George H.W. Bush, who would one day become president of the United States -- condensed from jacket flaps
