My upbringing saw me,from a very young age,much preferring to read horse form than read a book.

These days, I do look forward to reading. 

I'm not a fan of fiction.

Also from that book...walkie-talkie....so called because the American soldiers(WW2,at least) could communicate,with this massive back pack, while walking.

So simple but great to know.

It was made by MOTOROLA.

"FIVE BY FIVE" meant communication was CLEAR.

The book is called LOST IN SHANGRI-LA by Mitchell Zuckoff.

This author has the ability to keep you enthused about reading on,despite drifting you off the track.

A true story of rescue during WW2, in New Guinea
