In this episode, Jason Staples and Erik Rostad discuss book 21 of the 2017 Books of Titans Reading list – Once an Eagle by Anton Myrer.
Correction – submitted by Tom McCluskey
Hi, guys, just heard and enjoyed your podcast on Once An Eagle, one of my favorite books. Needed to correct you, however, on a mischaracterization of part of the story. One of you said that Sam was embedded with Chiang’s Kuomintang against Mao’s guerillas. That’s not correct; he was embedded with the guerillas in actions against the Japanese. Important distinction.
