  • By Richard Dobson on July 15, 2016

    The stories told in this book are great. Denny Thompson certainly lived through the heyday of big game hunting in Alaska. Couple the hunting adventures with the WWII missions he survived and you have an action packed life well told in Mr. Burckart's book.Disregard the editing errors and sit back for a thrilling read!
