Fletcher is captured by the Japanese and is forced to endure the horror of the Bataan Death March in the Philippines.

Reviews - What do customers think about Dawn of a Thousand Nights: A Story of Honor (The Liberator Series, Book 2)?
Touching Story Nov 16, 2006
"Dawn of a Thousand Nights" is a touching story of new love and the war that threatens to tear that love appart. The main characters, both pilots, are separated by the war just as they decide to give their hearts to each other. The book follows the trials and truimphs of each person as they struggle to find their way back to each other and end up finding a part of themselves in the process. I found "Dawn..." a fantastic story of love, heartache, dedication and finding the way back to God.
Not just your typical romance book Nov 9, 2006
This is a wonderful book. I couldn't put it down. The story woven in with the history was perfect. It couldn't have been better. I loved it so much I ordered a copy for my husband's grandfather who was in the pacific during WWII.
WWII remembered well Oct 4, 2006
Tricia Goyer touches the heart of every reader who was in WWII or had a family member involved. I read this with my heart remembering my uncle who was a POW, and what he gave for each one of us to have the freedoms we enjoy today. This is a precious book that is exciting and breathtaking at the same time.
Outstanding historical Jul 12, 2006
I've always been fascinated by stories about World War II, and this one is great. Libby Conners, pilot trainer and Don Luken, hotshot pursuit pilot, meet on a beach outside of Honolulu. Although it's June, 1941, and the U.S. is sending scores of pilots to Hawaii and the Phillippines, they are young and unafraid. They're in love and for them nothing can change. Then Don is transferred to the Phillipines, leaving Libby behind. On December 7, the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, and launched a similar attack on the Phillipines, and now nothing will ever be the same. This book is an honest, gripping portrayal of one of our country's darkest times. The research is accurate and incredible. The reader has a strong sense of place, whether in a plane, on a beach, or in a prison camp. You'll come away with a greater appreciation of the men and women in the military who risk their lives daily in the service of their country. I had never read anything by Tricia Goyer before, but I'm looking forward to the next one. She's an excellent writer.
Gripping May 12, 2006
If you haven't read this book, what are you waiting for? Get this book! It's a work of art. I loved it. Superbly written, using actual historical facts as it's backbone. But it's not a dry dull history text, (not that I consider history dry) but a gripping tale of love and endurance and faith. Once you dive in you will immmedatiely fall in love with Dan and Libby. Such wonderful and endearing characters. There is plenty of humor and there will be tears. I cried when I found out the "why" of the title to the book. And I stayed late at work to finish it. I consider Dawn of a Thousand Nights a must have for any history lover's bookshelf, as well as the WWII buffs out there. And if you just love a great story, you should read this book. It's on my keeper shelf and one I intend to enjoy again. (And read anything else the author writes.)
