What I'm reading:
"Conduct Under Fire" by John Glusman

I'm just getting into this weighty tome, which is the story of the author's father and three other doctors who were taken prisoner by the Japanese in the Philippines during World War II. It's well-written and exhaustively researched – I think it helps that the author is also an editor. He was careful to start the story with one of the friends rather than his dad, I was glad to see.

My grandfather was a doctor and among the first to help liberate the Santo Tomás POW camp of civilians in Manilla, so this kind of story has extra appeal for me.

I've been in a reading drought lately, so I hope I can stick with this.
