    The book Sole Survivor is an autobiography written by George Gay George Gay was the sole survivor of his suadron in a battle that took place in the middle of the Pacific Ocean during WWII There were 30 men in the VT 8's TBD Devastator suadron and on June 4 1942 they flew off of their carrier in pursuit of the Japanese Naval Fleet After many bullets ad torpedoes were exchanged between the two sides every single man in the Devastator Fleet was killed except for George Gay who somehow managed to survive the battle I loved the book Sole Survivor because of its uniue historical account its intriguing story and the emotion expressed in all sections of the book I enjoyed the commentary that Gay would make at certain points in the book which showed his opinion on different matters At one point during the battle Gay was watching as his companions took suicidal dives at the enemy ships in an effort to make a last ditch effort to destroy them On this issue Gay said that It's when a fellow is just gone and knows it it is just crash into the ship or crash into the sea and you have enough control to do a little bit damage why you crash into the ship Gay 276 These comments made by Gay help to elaborate on what the unit was thinking during the battle Gay also told of how his suadron was an inexperienced one and they had many issues stacked against them even before the battle took place While describing these different problems Gay said “Well Torpedo 8 had a difficult problem we had old planes and we were new in the organization”Gay 144 This means that their planes were not very updated and the Japanese had newer and better models of these planes which would make the Americans job much harder In conclusion Sole Survivor accomplished its goal of showing the bravery of all men in the VT 8’s suadron They faced a modernized fleet then themselves in territory much adept for the Japanese military tactics yet despite the odds the American suadron was able to sink 3 of the Japanese carriers This thrilling story kept me on the edge of my seat as a read further and further into the battle I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to those who share my enjoyment of reading about military related stories or anyone who wants an exciting story depicting the final moments of the lives of many brave men

    I found an autographed copy at a thrift store Lieutenant Commander Gay recounts his WW II service As the sole survivor of Topedo Suadron 8 in the Battle of Midway he has an interesting story to tell Despite his retelling of the hero's reception he received after the battle the book did not come off as self serving I appreciated reading this first hand account of important historyThe book was written at the end of the Carter presidency and at the end of the book he provides some frank commentary about his view of the military's preparedeness circa 1979 so it's dated due to that but even that is a nice bit of history

    I borrowed this book from a neighbor He had bought it at a talk by George Gay and it was signed May you be as lucky as I was at MidwayIt was well written informative and interesting Gay grew up poor in Texas Everyone knows about his attempt to attack the Japanese fleet with the rest of a suadron He had a view of the attack that sank their Carriers In 5 minutes he witnessed the hopes and dreams of a generation of Japanese burst into flames Maybe one of the most uniue sights every seen by human eyes He was sent home for recovery and good will tours but returned to combat He was very open and honest Even back in the 40s being a hero made it easier to get sex He became friends with a movie start and was once picked up off a train by her wearing only a fur coat Later on Iwo Jima he was trying to find a place to spend private time with a Nurse when they ran into a Marine patrol He was cursing a lost opportunity The patrol was thrilled and asked if they could do anything for her She asked if they could rig a shower In thanks she added her bra to the flag pole and left it as a Memory of what you are fighting for He was honest in other ways too After a briefing on a bombing mission he asked after dropping our bombs do we stick around and strafe? The answer was no the mission was to bomb Gay said sticking around doing extra work is a good way to get killed Do your job and go home so you can do your job tomorrow I think having proved himself he could be sensible and no longer flirt with the fool hardy That is a few of the highlights you will enjoy this book if you read it

    I was thrilled to find a copy on ebay of this book As a Naval Officer and aviator I was truly curious about Ensign Gays outlook on his survival experience especially in view of the great odds In short it was a disappointing read Although he wrote of his historic ringside seat to the Battle of Midway and the circumstanses working up to it He appeared to share little on his outlook of being the sole survivor He was open and extremely honest about being made a hero making appearances with Hollywood Starlets and the other extra activities that came his away I read it with a bad feeling of someone who capitalized on his luck to get the most out of life and the benefits the war had brought to him I think in retrospect I'd been better off not reading it It certainly didn't answer the uestions his existence triggered in my mind

    I bought this from the author at an airshow at San Diego's Brown Field just over the border from MexicoGeorge Gay was the sole survivor of the carrier Hornet's Torpedo 8 at the Battle of Midway His Devastator torpedo plane was the last of his suadron's fifteen to be shot down and he spent the rest of the battle hiding under a seat cushion to avoid being stafed by patroling Japanese zeros where he had a ringside seat for the eventual destruction of three of Admiral Nagumo's carriers at the hands of divebombers from Hornet's sister carriers Enterprise and YorktownGeorge spent the rest of the war following Admiral Halsey's orders to remind those Americans at home just what his 29 comrades from Torpedo Eight had fought and died for on the 4th of June 1942
