The Last Ring Home: A POW's Lasting Legacy of Courage, Love, and Honor in World War II ハードカバー – イラスト付き, 2016/11/5
"Minter Dial spent decades piecing together the life of the grandfather he never knew, in a quest that plunged him deep into one of the darkest chapters of the Pacific War. The Last Ring Home is the unforgettable story he uncovered--a tale of bravery, brutality, and monumental suffering. This book is a loving testimonial to the sacrifices of an entire generation." -- Janny Scott, author of A Singular Woman: The Untold Story of Barack Obama's Mother
"An unforgettable saga of determination, strength, sacrifice, and love set against the background of unspeakable horrors during World War II in the Pacific Ocean Theater." -- Gilbert King, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Devil in the Grove: Thurgood Marshall, the Groveland Boys, and the Dawn of a New America
"Here is an inspired feat of historical sleuthing that stretches across generations and continents. In this feelingly told account of the heroic life of a grandfather he never knew, Minter Dial reminds us that history, above all else, is personal." -- Hampton Sides, bestselling author of Ghost Soldiers and In the Kingdom of Ice
"Minter Dial has, with remarkable success, blended intimate family history with one of the more horrifying aspects of the Second World War. He vividly captures the unimaginable ordeal endured by his namesake grandfather. The result is a stark presentation of the sufferings and hopes of a young man caught up in a manmade manifestation of Hell." -- Charles Spencer, 9th Earl Spencer, author of Killers of the King: The Men Who Dared to Execute Charles 1, and the Sunday Times Bestseller, Prince Rupert: The Last Cavalier.
"Minter Dial's grandson, named for him, has spent years of his own life tracking down facts and shaping them into The Last Ring Home, a story of the human costs of war, life and death, love and loss." -- Gavan Daws, author of Prisoners of the Japanese: POWs of World War Two in the Pacific
"The legacy of the Americans who surrendered after the 1942 Battle of the Philippines can now add a new voice. The Last Ring Home is a poignant story of suffering and loss across the generations ... and one U.S. Naval Academy ring, which will leave readers thinking about the endurance of tenderness." -- Michael Norman and Elizabeth M. Norman, authors of Tears in the Darkness: The Story of the Bataan Death March and Its Aftermath
