    Leo Thorsness PDF/EPUB ´ ñ Epub franzbielmeier.de thorsness pdf, Leo Thorsness eBookI ordered the whole Medal of Honor series for my war story readers not even realizing that each book tells the true story of a Medal of Honor recipient Once I saw that this was the case I was even excited It's a pretty short book mostly just laying out a few details of Col Thorseness' life then his missions in Vietnam that led to 1 his Medal of Honor nomination and 2 soon after his being shot down and captured He spent almost 6 years as a POW; only one chapter is dedicated to this and is not extremely detailed which was fine with me since the focus of the book is his Medal of Honor There are pictures and text boxes throughout that give extra information about a variety of things related to the story The high book level is I believe due to the freuent use of military terms including names of aircraft and weapons The content is completely clean Good read

    Leo Thorsness PDF/EPUB ´ ñ Epub franzbielmeier.de thorsness pdf, Leo Thorsness eBookThis is the third book in the Medal of Honor series that I've read and I can certainly see why they might appeal to middle grade readers After all they focus on individuals who have received the Medal of Honor for bravery and often highlight those who might otherwise have been forgotten In this installment the focus is on Leo Thorness a lieutenant colonel who used his flying skills to distract enemy planes and protect others who were in danger of being killed by the North Vietnamese during a 1967 mission The author provides vivid details of his heroism and then describes how he ended up as a POW two weeks later after another flight He was kept imprisoned by the Viet Cong for six years Although he earned the medal for his antics in the sky it's also clear from the descriptions of what this man endured as a war prisoner that he behaved with courage on the groun

    Leo Thorsness PDF/EPUB ´ ñ Epub franzbielmeier.de thorsness pdf, Leo Thorsness eBookLeo Thorsness who lived in Washington state at one time was a Medal of Honor recipient whose actions saved soldiers during the Vietnam War Shortly after his heroic actions his plane was shot down and he was a prisoner of war for six years Though this book deals with a fighter pilot during the Vietnam War and his subseuent capture and confinement at the Hanoi Hilton prison camp it is appropriate for a middle school library It has facts but gratuitous or graphic images Pictures are in black and white but the print is clear and straight forward Though it is not a colorful book this would be a good series to add to your collection for students interested in biographies or courageous Americans
