BeschreibungAs World War II rages, love and war are waged on an equal footing. Whether in the pine forests of eastern Texas or the Japanese occupied South Pacific jungles, John Peak Sims must fight for survival on both fronts.
Often relying on his self-deprecating wit and wisdom, Sims spent the years before Pearl Harbor playing college football for Southern Methodist University in Dallas and fending off sexy co-eds while trying to stay true to his girlfriend back home. But in June of 1942, Sims enters the U.S. Naval Reserve and becomes a member of the elite Sundowner Squadron.
As a fighter pilot in the Pacific, he discovers that overcoming the atrocities of a cruel enemy requires a similar fortitude to surviving the vicissitudes of a love triangle. But as the war draws to a close, Sims will face the ultimate test of his loyalty-and his heart.
"Goodbye Sims Goodbye Takeo" artfully blends honest fact and earnest fiction around the life of real-life hero and collegiate-football-star-turned-fighter pilot, John Peak Sims. John Anderson Norman pens a powerful World War II novel that brilliantly captures the harsh reality of warfare with the intensity of human emotion.
