Heroes Don't Run
by Harry Mazer

Adam Pelko witnessed the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor that killed his father, a lieutenant on the USS Arizona. Even though he's underage, he enlists in the Marines. Sent first to boot camp, then to Okinawa, he experiences the stark reality of war firsthand -- the camaraderie and the glory as well as the grueling regimen, the paralyzing fear, and death. And at every turn, Adam must confront memories of his father. In this concluding volume of his World War II trilogy, Mazer masterfully illustrates Adam's journey as he navigates brutal circumstances that no boy should know.
