Real-life stories of soldiers and heroism are easy to find. Stories that include unique circumstances and events not well known can make for truly riveting listening. As narrated by George Newbern, the story of the Mosquito Bowl offers a stunning retelling of a football game on a remote island during the height of WWII. The game was played by servicemen from all walks of life with a range of playing experience. Newbern provides just the right amount of gruffness, grit, and compassion when sharing glimpses of the men who played the game and, all too often, ended up sacrificing their lives in service to the nation they loved. This is a tragic and engaging listen, and a must for any history buff. J.P.S. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2023]
