– Max Deweese
First came Pearl Harbor. Next came America's initial response to Japan with Doolittle's Tokyo raid. Then, the first land-based battles with the Japanese began at Guadalcanal and its surrounding islands. This is where we meet Max Deweese...among the first to confront the Japanese military in our long conquest to restore freedom to the world of WWII. Can any word but "courage" best sum up what Max and so many of his generation exhibited in their young lives?
This is: "Deweese, a service story".
