In The Isle of the Dragon, author Rolf Stibbe portrays the heroism and courage of United States Army Air Corps flight crews during combat in World War II against the forces of Imperial Japan.
In the wake of the attack on Pearl Harbor, the Japanese swept all Allied military threats from the South Pacific, including the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Dutch East Indies, Guam, and the Wake Islands. Facing peril and with death likely, a unique cast of characters make for a suspenseful, riveting read.
Stibbe interviewed a World War II combat veteran who flew the B-25 Mitchell Bomber nicknamed “Bugs Bunny,” in New Guinea. It sparked his interest to write this jungle adventure story. Readers will be thoroughly drawn into the story and entertained as they follow the plight of the lost bomber crew.
