48 BOYT, LT. GENE & DAVID L BURCH WITH A FOREWORD BY GREGORY J.W. URWIN. Bataan: A Survivor's Story.
University of Oklahoma Press, Norman: 2004. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
25 black-and-white Illustrations, 3 line drawings, 2 maps, hardcover, 272 pages, 5.5" x 8.5". Like many other young American men during the depression-era 1930s, Gene Boyt entered Franklin D. Roosevelt's Civilian Conservation Corps. Later, after receiving an ROTC commission in the Army Engineers and a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from the Missouri School of Mines, Boyt joined the Allied forces in the Pacific Theater. While building runways and infrastructure in the Philippines in 1941, Boyt enjoyed the regal life of an American officer stationed in a tropical paradise--but not for long. When the United States surrendered the Philippines to Japan in April 1942, Boyt became a prisoner of war, suffering unthinkable deprivation and brutality at the hands of the ruthless Japanese guards. One of the last accounts to come from a Bataan survivor, Boyt's story details the infamous Bataan Death March and his subsequent forty-two months in Japanese internment camps. In this fast-paced narrative, Boyt's voice conveys the quiet courage of the generation of men who fought and won history's greatest armed conflict. Gene Boyt achieved the rank of Captain by the time of his discharge from the military. After retiring from his work as an engineer with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, Mr. Boyt lived in Chickasha, Oklahoma, until his death in September 2003. "Instead of dwelling on enemy cruelty and indifference and the misery that permeated each day he spent in Japanese hands, Boyt concentrates on the people and things that helped him to live from one day to the next."--Gregory J. W. Urwin

57 BUNYAK, DAWN TRIMBLE WITH A FOREWORD BY ARNOLD KRAMMER. Our Last Mission: A World War II Prisoner In Germany.
University of Oklahoma Press, Norman: 2005. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
In this remarkable tale of courage, historian Dawn Trimble Bunyak recounts the experiences of her uncle, Lawrence Pifer, a technical sergeant who survived fourteen months of internment as a prisoner of war in World War II Nazi Germany. A radio operator and ball turret gunner on the American B-17 bomber Slightly Dangerous, Pifer was shot down during a raid on March 4, 1944. As he parachuted from the plummeting plane, Pifer witnessed the deaths of two of his fellow crewmembers. Captured by Nazi soldiers and taken to a series of German Stalag Luft camps, Pifer and other servicemen-mostly in their teens and twenties-endured torture, starvation, disease, and forced marches. When British forces liberated Pifer's group, he pushed his POW experiences deep into the recesses of his mind, not to recall them in detail for decades. Years later, a POW group at a Veterans Administration hospital helped Pifer realize that he was ready to tell his story. After forty hours of interviews with Pifer, Dawn Trimble Bunyak retells the enthralling story of an average enlisted man's struggle to survive in the face of hopelessness, with only his strong faith and pride in country to sustain him. In his foreword, historian Arnold Krammer shows how popular views of the prisoner-of-war experience have changed dramatically over time yet how rare are such first-person accounts as Pifer's. Enhanced by numerous photographs and maps and an appendix of prisoners' poetry, Our Last Mission is one of only a few oral histories that details the daily experiences of one of the 94,000 American POWs in Europe during World War II. 33 black-and-white Illustrations, 5 line drawings, 1 map, paperback ISBN, 272 pages, 6" x 8.5".
